It has been a busy year for model Agyness Deyn, who has inspired an increasing demand for quirky fashion, as girls try to emulate her pick-and-mix 1980s and punk looks.
Deyn’s product contracts have ranged from Giorgio Armani clothing to Shiseido cosmetics, and although she was dropped from the Burberry campaign this year, her rise to fame continues.
The 22-year-old’s style has struck a chord with fashion fans, who can’t get enough of her peroxide blonde pixie cut, winkle-pickers and shabby chic style, which won her the Best Dressed Woman of the Year Award from glossy style bible Tatler.
Deyn has kept close ties with childhood friend and fashion designer Henry Holland and continues to take part in catwalk shows for his House of Holland brand.
In commercial terms, her influence has helped put more eccentric styles on the fashion map. Footwear retailer Office, for instance, has included women’s winkle-pickers in its spring 09 collection, which would have been inconceivable in the days before Deyn.
