The Giles Deacon show notes read 'street casting'. Anonymous faces – found by stylist Fran Burns in Camden Town and New Cross – walked the catwalk alongside model veterans like Rachel Williams. The fashion crowd were, in short, confused. So we decided to catch up with Giles to get the low-down. ‘I wanted to show the collection on some diverse, inspirational women as I believe my customers are,' he told us. ‘I love characters and am really bored of seeing shows that solely rely upon a certain type of girl. So we have a great combination of professional models, a supermodel and girls scouted in the street from New Cross and Camden.' And what of the look model Amanda Laine showcased on the catwalk? His team called it a pencil-case, we first described it as a sperm, but according to Giles it's more a homage to the great milliner Stephen Jones. ‘A few seasons ago Stephen Jones did a lovely feather egg for my S/S '07 collection that Vlada wore, which is now in his new exhibition at the V&A, so it was a homage to that look,' he revealed. ‘I called it "Vlada look 7" and this one was called "Son of Vlada". And what a cracking Mohican he had!'
