A Temperley Bride


"It’s about complete romance; a Sicilian dream; a tropical mood in a Mediterranean environment,” Alice Temperley said after her show this afternoon. “And it’s a real celebration of Temperley – the Alice line covers our everyday offering so that the main line has really become about intricate, spoiling detail and a feeling of couture.” (Vogue Online)

So here is my first illustration inspired by the Temperley S/S 14 collection. I was really inspired by the quote above and decided to choose a Sicilian landscape for the background, and I'm really happy with how it's turned out! I was going to do a group illustration but then I decided that each girl deserved her own portrait so I actually have another one to finish and hopefully I will be able to share that with you in the next few days. The other girl looks a lot like Drew Barrymore for some reason (it was totally unintentional!) but I like Drew so that's cool with me. I hope you guys like this!

  2. eee this dress was my favourite from your post the other day and I think your illustration is absolutely stunning! She almost looks like she's just about to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life in a super relaxed location against a beautiful background of rich blue skies. Gorgeous! <3

  3. I do like this! This sort of style of wedding dress is my favourite. Because of the silhouette, you can be a little more creative with the details. I really like the colours you've chosen for the dress and the ribbon.
