Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane Switch Up Runway Traditions
Giles Deacon marked his return to London Fashion Week yesterday by showcasing a feminine, floral collection.
The British designer - who until this year has debuted his pieces at Paris Fashion Week - juxtaposed curve-enhancing floral dresses with outlandish sci-fi stage make-up on his all-star cast of models. As well as iconic British models Agyness Dean and Amber Le Bon, Deacon shunned the size zero trend by sending curvier stars Kelly Brook and a pregnant Abbey Clancy down the runway.
However, Amber Le Bon didn’t only lend her talents to one designer yesterday, as she also modelled for Canadian designer Mark Fast, who trained at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins college, who gave his signature knitted dresses a colourful twist.
Elsewhere, Christopher Kane channeled the Spring/Summer 2011 trend of bright colors in his collection, with his “aristocrat gone bad” theme pushing fashion boundaries with neon vinyl, orange and fuchsia lace and graphic prints: “There’s been so much white and minimalism, I just reacted against that. I don’t want that. I don’t see that as being modern. To me, I think it’s old and used.”
