Giles Deacon to head to Paris?

Reports suggest Giles Deacon will head to Paris Fashion Week to show his spring 10 collection after the British Designer scooped a top French design prize.

It remains unclear whether Giles will have a presence at London Fashion Week in September. The designer’s Giles label has been one of the biggest draws at the event in recent seasons.

Giles’ move across the channel is contrary to several other British labels. Mulberry, Burberry Prorsum and Matthew Williamson are among the big name British design houses planning to return to the UK’s capital to help mark LFW’s 25th birthday in September.

Giles Deacon is understood to have scooped a €160,000 (£136,932) prize from the National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts [ANDAM]. The prize is designed to help designers who are under the age of 40 expand their businesses in France.

A spokeswoman for Giles Deacon, who also produces a collection for high street chain New Look, said she was awaiting confirmation about where the designer would show.

A spokeswoman for the British Fashion Council, which organises London Fashion Week, said it had not received confirmation of Giles’ plans but added: “If this is the case it just proves there is so much creative talent in London.”
