World leading fashion designer and Somerset girl Alice Temperley MBE talks about her love for the county

14 Oct 2021


What do you love about Somerset?

Knowing every tiny back-lane all the droves on the somerset levels and what the best swimming rivers are to swim in. The lay of the land as we have explored, cycled, ridden, and driven it since childhood. I love the seasons, the wildflowers in spring, the mists in autumn and all that the countryside offers. 
 
Tell us about your feelings about Buying locally?

Highly important and rewarding, to work with local craftsmen on our doorstep is direct and natural and extremely enjoyable to be personable again. 
 
We understand you are passionate about local products, why is this?
As above ..

What is the ethos behind Temperley London?

Craftsmanship and quality first and foremost. Pieces to be work for seasons to come. 
What are your future plans?
To create a lifestyle brand based in Ilminster .. all our homeware and the re launch of our Somerset line is in work.
We now have a bar and a bakery in Ilminster and so much more is to come …. Come see us!
