William Tempest

William Tempest is a British Fashion designer from Cheshire, he studied a National Diploma in Fashion at London Road, Mid Chesire which Is the same course and college I am completing.
He then progressed on to work for Giles Geacon and study at the London College of Fashion where he got a honours degree in womenswear before moving to Paris and launching his label during 2009.

Tempest's look focus's on tailoring, innovative cutting and experiments with shape. His designs have been worn by celebrities such as Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Lilly Allen, Leona Lewis, Victoria Beckham, Jameela Jamil and my favourite syle icon ALEXA CHUNG!

Tempest has also collaborated with high profile supermodels such as Kate Moss, to launch a new fashion exibiton held at Kensignton place in London a pace with Vivieene Westwood, and has been featured in magazines such as Harperz Baazar, Elle and Vogue.

Whats more exiting, is that he is visiting OUR college during the month of December, this will give us the oppertunity to ask any questions we may have regarding how our course was of benefit and any general questions about his experiences.
I will update once he has been.... EXITING!

These are two of my favourite designs from the Spring/11 collection which was inspired by a painting by John William Waterhouse, in which alot of his work featured mermaids and the sea.
Throughout this collection Tempest has worked with georgetts and chiffons placing them on top of a structerd layer, which keeps in sync with his signature.
