The celebrated British designer Giles Deacon is the brains behind New Look's iconic Gold by Giles Deacon collection. Hailing from Darlington in County Durham, Giles began his career at Bottega Veneta and Gucci before launching his own cutting-edge fashion label in 2003. He went on to win 'Best New Designer' epithet at the British Fashion Awards the following year before being named British Fashion Designer of the Year in 2006. His style has been described as everything from quirky and wild to 'randomness incarnate'.
Giles' range of women's clothing for New Look displays his characteristic playful style, incorporating patterned skirts, jersey dresses and skinny jeans, all with a unique twist. The collection blends high fashion and high street style, walking the fine line between cutting-edge and wearable. The complementary range of accessories exudes catwalk chic - think skyscraper heels and bold, bling jewellery.
The Gold by Giles Deacon women's clothes collection was originally launched by US actress Drew Barrymore, and made an instant hit in the world of celebrity fashion. To date, there have been ten collections, with the most recent launched in March 2010.
