Alice Temperley's been all over the place. This time last year she had a bash of a runway show in the big tent; last season, a more intimate show in London and today a presentation and the above video present her Fall 09 collection. Temperley according to Alice: The mood -- "Everything needed to be special. It's really about key things with multiple uses, pieces that function, easier silhouettes. But I wanted to get tough, too. " The inspiration -- "We called the collection 'Empress of the Orient." It's really inspired by Beardsley and Poiret. I want it to be a celebration of the clothes." The presentation -- "I'm so relieved to not cast, not deal with the models or the politics of seating and all that. It's just not the most creative way to show your collection. Everyone's traveling, and so busy, you have the press, the buyers, the customers and now everyone can see it all at once. And see the clothes move and all know what's happening at the same time in this really creative way."
