William Tempest designs forum collection for River Island
08
Aug '12
River Island Design Forum returns for Autumn 2012 with a collection of specially commissioned pieces created by William Tempest.

William's exclusive range for River Island draws inspiration from ancient Egyptian mythology, 1920s interiors and the work of M. C. Escher. Key pieces from the collection of effortless eveningwear separates and accessories include a sequinned chiffon women's shirt dress, an art deco plunge back column dress and laser cut heels.

Black and nude fabrics with opaque contrasts feature heavily alongside textiles designed exclusively for the collection, including a tessellated design and a geometric art deco pattern. The scarab beetle, a symbol of wealth and power for ancient Egyptians, acts as a motif which runs throughout the range via prints and finishes.

William's Design forum collection will make its debut via short film at LONDON'S FASHION WEEK's second biannual festival. FASH/ON FILM, an initiative devised by the British Fashion Council in conjunction with River Island, aims to support and develop creative film in the industry.

William Tempest studied at the London College of Fashion and worked with both Giles Deacon and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac before launching his eponymous line in 2009. William's flair for creating luxurious, modern pieces has enabled him to count Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Emma Watson as fans. The 13 piece collection will be available in selected River Island stores and online at riverisland.com in October.
