View transcript of video

July 2009

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

Giles Deacon graduated from Central Saint Martins and worked with Jean Charles de Castelbajac in Paris and Bottega Veneta and Gucci, in Milan, before launching his eponymous label 'Giles' in 2004. His debut received instant international acclaim and brought a renewed focus to London fashion.

Deacon's work mixes a high level of craftsmanship with a whimsical approach often referencing pop-culture. His pieces feature dramatic proportions, startling prints and tactile surface finishes which combine to make elegantly irreverent clothes.
