Giles Deacon Returns To London
Giles Deacon is returning to London Fashion Week.
The former Gucci designer has shown his collections in Paris for the past two seasons, but he is to make a welcome return to his native country at the prestigious event in September.
Talking about his own label GILES, he said: "GILES is a quintessential London label and I am extremely happy to be showing in London after two successful seasons in Paris."
Matthew Williamson, Antonio Berardi, Burberry Prosum and Jonathan Saunders will show for the third consecutive season, while Michael Van Der Ham, Mary Katrantzou, David Koma and Holly Fulton will make their catwalk debuts.
Earlier this year, Deacon was confirmed as Emanuel Ungaro's new creative director but promised to continue with his own line.
He said: "I obviously don't want to infringe upon my own line, but I like things that are very feminine, lots of colour, great prints, great quality, some unusual cuts. All of those things that I like in the world of fashion design I'm going to bring to what I feel is appropriate for the Ungaro woman."
