About the designer
Giles Deacon first made a marked impression in debuting his own label 'Giles' with an Autumn/Winter collection for 2004. It was on the strength of his graduating collection - which featured nature references and prints - that a meeting with Tom Ford was set up, and he was invited on board to take up a series of appointments with fashion houses in Paris and Milan. His most high-profile appointment came in 2000 when he joined Bottega Veneta as head designer alongside stylist Katie Grand. The hard-edged debut collection which used white, metallic and neon, hyped the reputation of the house considerably. Shortly afterwards he was re-appointed to another position designing for Gucci itself. His 'Giles' collection is a closer reflection of his own tastes, being less confrontational in style, though his partnership with Katie Grand remains. Giles also works closely with illustrator and textile designer Rory Crichton, and with British weavers Stephen Walters and Sons. In 2009 Giles Deacon won the ANDAM prize, and began showing his collections on the Paris catwalk from S/S 2010. In 2010 Deacon was appointed Creative Director of the label Emanuel Ungaro.
