British designer Giles Deacon is expected to show his Giles collection in Italy for the first time next year at womenswear trade show Pitti W.
Deacon is in discussions with the event to take part in Pitti W in Florence as a featured designer guest.
Other guest designers to have shown at Pitti W in previous seasons include Diane von Furstenberg, Giambattista Valli and Proenza Schouler.
A Pitti W spokeswoman said: “Giles Deacon is a young designer and we are always interested in those kind of designers. Discussions are taking place.”
The fifth edition of the exhibition, which runs concurrently with menswear fair Pitti Uomo, will take place January 12-15.
Earlier this month, Deacon showed his spring10 collection for the first time during Paris Fashion Week as the winner of a 2009 ANDAM award awarded by France’s National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts.
