WATCH Giles Deacon Prepare His Autumn Winter 2012 Collection: EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

21 March 2012

The Giles show is always one of London Fashion Week's hottest tickets and the Brit designer's Autumn Winter 2012 collection was, quite literally, scorching hot. Brimming with full-skirted dresses, dusky prints on shirts and gowns, plus breathtaking burnished detailing (achieved with a hand-held creme brulee torch, no less!), the pieces were nothing short of ladylike luxe. So, of course, Grazia Daily jumped at the chance to get a sneak peek at video that shows the collection in the making (scroll down to watch).

Mr Deacon confides that whilst the Giles woman (that'll be all of us here at Grazia then) remains the same, he challenges himself by placing her in new and exciting situations. 'This season is the further adventures of a disco Jacobean fairytale,' he says. And describing how the look came together he reveals, 'Going back to the story of the house fire, would you go for something sentimental or would you go for the treasures? I think she went mostly for the treasures!'

Lady Giles certainly did! After 15 seasons working with Swarovski Elements, there are some major evening gowns swathed with glittering gems that we'd quite happily brave a burning building for. 'They're super dramatic' and the beading is 'the icing on the cake,' says the designer. See the beauties in action below...
