Top fashion designer joins the team

Winner of the coveted Fashion Designer Of The Year 2006 award, Giles Deacon is the word on every fashionista’s lips.

So New Look will be thrilled to have snapped him up to create an ongoing capsule collection for their trend-focused store.

The line, called Gold, kicks off in mid-March with a spring/summer 07 collection, which will consist of 35 pieces including dresses, jackets, shoes, trousers and accessories.

Giles says of the partnership: ‘I really wanted to do a long-term collaboration, and New Look doesn’t have a huge stable of designers. They’re terrific to work with – they just really get it.’

Mark March in your diary, girls – if the Viktor & Rolf for H&M stampede is anything to go by, you’ll need to be there bright and early.
