Inside the Studio | Giles Deacon | Chapter II

"A Designer Who Has Always Drawn…"

Giles Deacon began drawing at the age of three, so it's not surprising that illustration forms a fundamental part of his creative process.

The second chapter of Giles' story uncovers the organised randomness behind Giles' arresting design concoctions, often starting with a sketch. He explains how designs like the now iconic Pacman dress from Spring/Summer 2009 and the much talked-about Bambi dress from Spring/Summer 2008, which landed on the front cover of the New York Times, were conceived and developed.
