For the past 6 weeks, I’ve been working for a British designer; Giles. Giles Deacon (The designer) is a Central Saint Martins graduate and has won awards like ‘Best New Designer’ at the British Fashion Awards, the Elle ‘Best New Designer’ award in February 2005, ‘British Designer of the Year’ at the British Fashion Awards in November 2006 . It’s definitely been an amazing experience especially as this was my first internship. I started just in time to be able to experience the weeks leading to London fashion week, which was great.
I saw how much was done to create the final collection, how things were scrapped last minute, how designs changed. It was a lot like what I do at uni but more work altogether obviously. I also got to see what else happens on the side like collaborations, photo shoots, model castings, client visits and I was lucky enough to even see Victoria and Harper Beckham.
This here is a dress I worked on with a few other people for just over 2 weeks. every single Swarovski crystals was hand sewn. It was so beautiful and I finally understand why items that are hand beaded are just so expensive.
