Temperley London Signature Pale Pink and Black Dress Beading and Appliqué


This dress is an Art Deco dream. Is it any surprise it was created by Alice Temperley? After the British socialite married her sweetheart in a Twenties-inspired gown she made, requests from her fabulous friends who wanted something similar began pouring in. In 2006, she set up shop and today Kate Bosworth, Emma Watson, Poppy Delevingne, Pippa Middleton and Kate Middleton are among her clientele who seek her out for her highly feminine designs.

This pretty frock comes in the label’s signature pale pink matte silk satin and features an exquisite embroidered and beaded black silk satin trim. The trim of vintage flower buds crisscrosses at a low-cut V-neckline to form a stunning double pointed yoke at the back waistline. Intricate seaming ensures the dress fits beautifully, elegantly gliding over the figure and then flaring with black silk satin insets at the skirt. Play up its retro styling for a cocktail party or wedding—or update it for a more modern look.
