Escher!
I haven't been this excited about a collection for a long time! Considering that I clearly should of been born in the 1920's in Downtown Abbey and I have a strong fascination with the Egyptians and their ancient lifestyle, I can not wait to get my hands on one of Tempest's beautiful dresses! Providing the perfect combination of inspiration; I wish I had of designed them myself!! William creates a mix of sequinned chiffon shirts and art deco plunge back column dress's, not to mention the beautiful bags! Make sure you keep up to date with this designer!
William says. “I used the Scarab Beetle, a symbol of wealth and power for Ancient Egyptians, as a motif, which runs throughout the collection in prints, embellishments, and on trims such a zip pullers.”
