Fashion in Motion: Giles Deacon

Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion shows at the V&A featuring leading fashion designers from across the world.

Giles Deacon graduated from Central Saint Martins and worked with the designers 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.
