This applique and embroidery story is inspired by Operatic theatre set designs. The Opera Tattoo Dress is embroidered in layers of tonal applique onto a fine dot tulle to portray the shadowy layers of theatre sets, finished with striking, colourful sequin borders, reminiscent of the gilt edging on classical columns.

Temperley prints are painstakingly hand-painted in-house. Motifs are collaged onto the body then lovingly engineered into compositions that work in harmony with the garment’s panelling, ensuring the printed fabric flows flawlessly across seam joints when the garment is constructed. The process is both meticulous and spontaneous, with an outcome that is truly unique and artisanal.
Committed to creating unique and original textiles, the Temperley team designs lace and woven fabrics in-house at our atelier, which are then crafted by our trusted partners at expert mills across the globe. We utilise best quality Italian tulle, soft and sheer, perfectly structured with a flawless drape. Another staple material includes luxurious silk, woven to create a lustrous effect, with a smooth and radiant finish, perfect for eveningwear.
Imagined by our team at the creative hub and beating heart of the brand, our atelier in Somerset — infusing a bohemian spirit, intrinsically woven into the pieces, the exquisite craftsmanship, blending modern techniques with artisanal mastery.
With an ardent commitment to slow fashion, we at Temperley are always consciously looking forward, for ways to be better, considering every step in the process. We create garments that should last a lifetime and encourage caring for these creations so they can be handed on. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, with a story to tell and memories to be made.
