She dresses some of the world’s most elegant women and soon Somerset-born fashion designer Alice Temperley will open World of Temperley, her first flagship store in London’s Mayfair.
Ten years after she launched her first collection at London Fashion Week, Miss Temperley is looking forward to opening the doors of a six-floor Georgian building at 27 Bruton Street.
The Queen was born just a few doors away and her granddaughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, is one of Miss Temperley’s fans.
The building will house all three Temperley collections; Temperley London, ALICE by Temperley contemporary line and Temperley Bridal.
The Bruton Street location will also become the new head office.
“It feels like the right time for our company to make this move and embark on the next phase of our business expansion” said Miss Temperley, who was awarded an MBE for services to fashion.
"British fashion is at an important juncture and we are proud to have been part of the journey for the past ten years.”
