V&A Fashion in Motion: Giles Deacon
This Fashion in Motion film from 2007 showcases the best of six years work by the fast-rising fashion designer
A blend of high glamour and offbeat creativity has made Central St Martins graduate Giles Deacon a star of British design since he set up his studio in 2003 after stints with Bottega Veneta and Gucci. Deacon bagged the British Designer of the Year award in 2006, and added the ANDAM Grand Prix in 2009. This close-up Fashion in Motion retrospective at the V&A showcases highlights from six years of stunning Deacon creations. The charming Cumbrian also speaks backstage about his mission to bring ground-breaking pieces back to the catwalk and about his preoccupation with Pac Man
On show here are the craftsmanship, striking proportions and the spectacular irreverence that define the trademark Deacon style.
