Alice Temperley unveils her stunning silk designs for the Markel Magnolia Cup.
We are thrilled to unveil this year’s beautiful jockey silks, which have been created by renowned British fashion designer Alice Temperley.
Carefully selected from the Temperley archive, which spans over 20 years of fashion design, the silks incorporate some of Temperley’s most iconic prints. Each motif is hand painted and engineered to the female form, coming in multiple striking colourways that have been chosen in order to individually identify each jockey on the racecourse. A personal favourite, the Avril Print draws inspiration from the psychedelic colour palette of the late Sixties and was originally designed during lockdown – when Alice was filled with nostalgia for dancing in a field and a curiosity for what would come next! Other celebrated prints that feature on the silks draw inspiration from nature, from Agate Crystals to Animal Print – a Temperley signature look.
