Today the Victoria and Albert Museum treated fashion fans to exclusive live catwalk shows by top British Designer Giles Deacon.
The first Giles Deacon show of the day started a fashionable half-hour late with thunder, lightning and a fairytale floaty dress. This was followed by oversized knitwear, spiky jewelled felt frocks and giant furry helmets.
My favourite piece was a voluminous white dress with a hem that swooped up into a puffball skirt then up further to create a headdress that looked like floppy rabbit ears. I’d wear it.
The show features a retrospective of his favourite designs from the last five years. It’s exciting to see Giles’ work up close and to see him take a quick bow at the end!
Fashion designer Giles Deacon is best known for his bold geometric designs. Celebrities love his clothes (and so do trendy high street shoppers – Giles designs a special clothing range for men and women for New Look)
The V&A stage catwalk shows by the biggest names in fashion as part of their Fashion in Motion series a couple of times a year and the best bit is that you can go for free! You need a ticket but the tickets are free and everyone can queue up and get one. (Be quick, there’s a limited number for each show.)
