Alice Temperley for the Markel Magnolia Cup 2023


Alice's iconic silk prints adorned the inspirational line up of female jockeys at the Markel Magnolia Cup 2023 for the Qatar Goodwood Festival.

As per tradition, Goodwood selects a female-led fashion brand to create the collection of bespoke silks for the racing occasion. Previous designers include the likes of Hermes, Liberty, Mulberry, and Dame Vivienne Westwood.

Several of Temperley London's archive prints such as the Leonie, Avril, Clementina and Theodora were selected and reimagined in the form of racing silks in 2023. All are original prints, hand painted in Somerset.

A decade ago, the Goodwood race was conceived to overcome the boundaries within horse racing, creating an inclusive community in support of women, their abilities, and well-being.

Every year the line-up features a truly inspiring team of riders from diverse backrounds and ages, each set to contest the five-and-a-half-furlong race down Goodwood Racecourse’s straight in August. You can even apply for next years line-up here.

We are proud to be partnered with this much anticipated charity race and Education Above All. All net proceeds will benefit the (EEA) Educate A Child programme in Malawi, which provides teaching and support for at-risk children and young girls in primary education. Since its inception, the philanthropic event has raised a significant £2.10 million.

Alice spoke to the Goodwood team ahead of the event, welcoming them to our Headquarters in Ilminster, Somerset.
