Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane Switch Up Runway Traditions

Agyness Deyn walks for Giles DeaconGiles Deacon marked his return to London Fashion Week yesterday by showcasing a feminine, floral collection.

The British designer - who until this year has debuted his pieces at - juxtaposed curve-enhancing floral dresses with outlandish sci-fi stage make-up on his all-star cast of models. As well as iconic British models Agyness Dean and Amber Le Bon, Deacon shunned the size zero trend by sending curvier stars Kelly Brook and a pregnant Abbey Clancy down the runway.

However, Amber Le Bon didn’t only lend her talents to one designer yesterday, as she also modelled for Canadian designer , who trained at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins college, who gave his signature knitted dresses a colourful twist.

Elsewhere, channeled the Spring/Summer 2011 trend of bright colors in his collection, with his “aristocrat gone bad” theme pushing fashion boundaries with neon vinyl, orange and fuchsia lace and graphic prints: “There’s been so much white and minimalism, I just reacted against that. I don’t want that. I don’t see that as being modern. To me, I think it’s old and used.”
