The Paradise pub in Kensal Green played host last week to the first birthday celebration of fashion label Alice by Temperley.
The ‘English Eccentric’ theme attracted a crowd of fabulously dressed guests who drank Chambord cocktails, aptly named; ‘Blushing Alice’ and ‘Somerset Breeze’ and ate haute-English-cuisine canapés prepared by head chef Tim Payne, former executive chef on Marco Pierre White’s Hells Kitchen. Some dressed in top hats and coat tails, whilst others sported symbols of Britishness like Union Jacks and tartans.
Designer, Alice Temperley wore head to toe leopard print including a foot high hat from the Spring/Summer collection.
The star-studded guest list included Daisy Lowe, Ellie Goulding, Nick Grimshaw and Edith Bowman who turned out to celebrate the brand’s recent success.
The sister brand of Temperley London, Alice by Temperley has “it’s own fresh and accessible aesthetic,” and it’s first ever ‘Cruise’ collection, launched this month will be stocked in all leading international stores. The brand also has plans for it’s own London flagship store for 2011.
Since its creation last year the brand has gone from strength to strength, gaining a number of fans such as Beyoncé and Jessica Biel, along the way. The Notting Hill based label encompasses Britishness, making clothes for the ‘London girl’. The brand’s accessibility and affordability will no doubt lead to further success and we’re likely to see the growth of the brand in years to come.
Happy Birthday Alice by Temperley!
