Vogue highlights designer Giles Deacon

London Fashion Week draws to a close as it packs up its bags and heads off to Milan. Vogue offer their favourite bits from the week’s events covering the “most versatile model” to “best front row.”

Designer Giles was awarded “most surprising collection” for his autumn/winter, Ready-To-Wear designs quoting them as “austerely beautiful.” That’s simple and understated to you and me. This may have something to do with the fact he has been working with The English National Ballet to design a tutu for prima ballerina Elena Glurdjidze for their adaptation of Black Swan. A truly delicate and vintage-inspired outfit whilst being simple, like his collection below. Read the full story here.

Other mentions were for “best front row” which was a close call between usual winner, Burberry, and Mulberry. Model Milly Simmonds was credited the most versatile model for being almost unrecognisable between catwalks for Burberry, Pringle of Scotland, Clements Ribeiro and many more.

The final big mention has to be for “best show“. Giles, Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou were all in the running but the overall winner went to Scottish designer, Jonathon Saunders (pictured below). See photos of his beautiful collection here.
