Giles Deacon to hold catwalk show at Kensington Palace

Giles Deacon will present a selection of his designs at Kensington Palace's Orangerie. The catwalk presentation, dubbed Georgian Fashion Remix, will feature a variety of clothes from Giles' archive, drawing on 18th century styles.

"The show will highlight 'the surprising and sometimes subtle ways' that Deacon has woven 18th-century influences into his collection," read a statement from Kensington Palace. "Such as the pannier-style silhouettes of his fall 2007 collection and the brocade gowns he sent out for fall 2012."

Renowned milliner Stephen Jones will also be participating in the one-off event, designing the hats to accessorize the models' outfits.

The special catwalk show, which will be open to the public, features as part of Kensington Palace's Glorious Georges series, a year of exhibitions and events to mark the 300th anniversary of George I's ascension to the throne in 1714.

It's been a busy few weeks for Giles, who showcased his Spring 2015 designs at London Fashion Week in September. Models strutted down the catwalk in bold prints and patterned dresses, while fashionistas including Daisy Lowe and Jaime Winstone watched from the front row.

Close friend Victoria Beckham didn't make an appearance, which could have been because she was working on the opening of her new flagship store.

"We've made a few pieces together over the years and she's so fun," Giles has said of Victoria. "Plus, she's got great taste and a good eye – she knows what she looks best in better than anyone else."
