I love wearing pyjamas so I was quite delighted when William Tempest told me he was doing a collaboration with the W London to design a limited edition, reversible pyjama set. The British-produced pyjamas are meant to express the duality of the British personality – buttoned up by day and let loose by night. To celebrate the launch of the pyjamas there was a pyjama party at the W London’s Extreme WOW suite with William DJing!
William has been designing for the past 5 years since he graduated from London College of Fashion. During this time he’s established himself as a luxury British designer. He’s recently done a collaboration with River Island as well as one with Disney, while also designing bespoke pieces for celebrities. He is also designing a special dress for Leona Lewis for a charity auction.
