British designer William Tempest will make his New York Fashion Week debut this September when he presents his Spring/Summer 2011 collection at Lincoln Center.You should be familiar with the brand by now as you’ve seen Tempest’s designs on the likes of Nadine Coyle, Leona Lewis, Erin O’Connor, Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson and Michelle Williams.
“Showing in New York is a fantastic opportunity for me to present my collection to the press, buyers and stylists in the U.S. New York has such an amazing and positive energy and I can’t wait to show my collection there,” Tempest said.
“The U.S. is a huge market and I am really looking forward to working with my sales team to help develop the label over there, which showing in New York will give us the platform to do.”
The William Tempest presentation will take place on Monday, September 13 at the new Mercedes-Benz/IMG New York Fashion Week venue at Lincoln Center. Be careful though as you might fall in love with his darling boyish charm as he struts down the runway at the end of the show!
Congrats, William, on breaking into an impossible market! We’ll be there cheering you on from the sidelines….(yes, that is a sly ticket request).
