G is for Giles Deacon
Giles Deacon is a truly imaginative fashion, designer who according to New York Magazine, manages to perfect 'a blend of whimsy and wow.' With obscure sources of inspiration ranging from Gothicism to S&M, Deacon is known to be in contrast, every bit the polite and proper Englishman. Having put in time at numerous fashion houses including Bottega Veneta and Gucci, the designer has gradually worked his way up, establishing his very own unique and independent label. Two years ago Deacon established Giles, his first signature brand, and today works under his full name, where he prioritizes a need for quality, while incorporating a unique wittiness in his show-stopping garments. Look out for Giles Deacon's broad talent in his lines for big names like Daks and the Gap.
