Cool Britannia 2.0

The Brits have brought us such great talent as Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and John Galliano just to name a few. This time they have produced a talent in the form of Giles Deacon. I love how Giles manipulates fabric to produce unique masterpieces. I first heard of him last season when he produced a dress that was hand painted pictures of headless Bambi. In today's toned down commercialized world of fashion it's so refreshing to see someone who puts the excitement back into the industry. I loved his spring/summer 09 collection because it was just as artistic as his last with all the hand painted dresses and the shredded and manipulated fabric he once again produced a stand out collection. One thing I like the most about Giles, is that his clothes are unique but still wearable. All of his dresses could be worn at a society cocktail party or to the office. I especially liked the weird hats that he gave the models that from the side looked like a Mrs. Pacman. This is a designer that you can clearly tell is going places.
