There was a lot that I didn't like at Giles, but as you can see, there were a couple of themes his Giles Deacon did well. Metallic cut-outs and printed silk dresses beautifully draped were two obvious ones. Some of the cuts were a little off - they didn't sit well on the figure of the models and they're thin - if it had been a normal sized person the cuts would have been really out. They either had no shape or the shape they had stuck out in all the wrong places. Having said that, the pieces above are not of that quality and are beautiful examples of what Giles can do. What I loved the most was the precision - they must have been laser-cut - of the doily patterned outfits. It is a way of combining the old with the new (futuristic silver metallic leather). Any woman would be honoured to wear something so original and flattering as these pieces above, I'm sure.
