Alice Temperley MBE

English fashion designer Alice Temperley MBE founded her eponymous brand in 2000 after stints at the Royal College of Art and Central St Martins, and her designs have since been worn by Kate Middleton, Madonna, Beyonce, and Halle Berry, among many, many others.

Today, Alice and I discuss that ascent and some of the challenges that have come with running a brand alongside being a mum, how being a creative at the helm of a business can at times pull you away from the very thing that put your name on the map, her signature red lipstick, the origin of that inimitable Temperley aesthetic, and her collaboration with Oskia London, for whom she created the 'LOVE' massage candle*.

*10% of the RRP is donated to Women to Women International, for whom Alice is an ambassador, when purchased directly from either Temperley London outlets or Oskia online.
