William Tempest Debuts At New York Fashion Week
Previous Vauxhall Fashion Scout Merit Award winner, William Tempest, made his New York Fashion Week debut yesterday, with the presentation of his SS 11 collection. Entitled ‘The Sirens Song,’ (inspired by the half-woman/ half-fish mythical creatures) Tempest’s latest collection reflected a vibrant colour palette with stunning shades of coral, lime and nude. With the American market in mind, the 24 year old designed a series of draped gowns and loosely fitting jumpsuits, in addition to his signature style of sharp sculptured dresses.
Here William talks to Hilary Alexander at the Daily Telegraph about his decision to go state side, the cost of presenting at New York Fashion Week and his celebrity fan following:
