Giles Deacon recently spoke of his passion for London Fashion Week, and the British designer made sure he made a lasting impression as he debuted his Spring and Summer 2013 collection on the fourth day of the style extravaganza.
The stunning catwalk show, which was staged at the Stationers' Hall in St Paul's last night, was as eclectic as it was dramatic, with haunting, fairy tale inspired dresses with stunning prints including images of mythological horse Pegasus, and leather cut-out gowns.
However the gorgeous designs were upstaged by the dramatic headgear worn by the models as they strutted down the runway in front of an audience which included British star Kelly Brook.
