Giles Deacon is set to leave London Fashion Week in favour of Paris, to show his S/S 10 collection.
The British designer scooped a £136,932 (160,000 Euro) prize from the National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts (ANDAM) which will allow him to develop his business in Paris. Previous winners of the prize include British designers Gareth Pugh and Richard Nicoll.
The news follows the revelations that British designers are this season flocking back to London to show their news collections. Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Jonathan Saunders and Pringle are all among those set to return.
So, it’s all change for this season’s LFW, and the news is bitter-sweet. We’re sorry to see you go Giles!
