The British designer doesn't show at fashion week or produce six collections a year, and he's OK with that.
New York Fashion Week is officially over. Soon, we will be sharing with you the very best from London, but for now it is time for a recap. After much deliberation, we present our ten favorite New York collections. Enjoy!
If you don’t know William Tempest, you soon will. He’s a baby-faced 24-year-old Englishman with an amazing pedigree (stints at Giles Deacon and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac) who already counts Emma Watson, Kate Moss, and Victoria Beckham as fans. After his first collection debuted three seasons ago, he was compared to a young McQueen. This is his first season showing in New York. I asked him what he found different about showing in New York vs. London and he told me, “The energy’s just really different. I was excited to do a presentation here so that I could actually meet editors and buyers in person.” He’ll also be showing in Milan this season. His clothes are clearly ready for their international close-up.
