Giles Deacon talks Bella Hadid and his star-studded LFW show with HELLO! Fashion

Giles Deacon's London Fashion Week show in September saw the world's biggest models uniting to model his latest designs, with the line-up including stars such as Lily Donaldson, Irina Shayk and Georgia May Jagger. Speaking exclusively to HELLO! Fashion exclusively at the launch of his Giles Deacon Edition Collection for Debenhams, modelled by Giles' close friend Daisy Lowe, the designer revealed why he was particularly impressed by Bella Hadid as she made her Fashion month debut.

Daisy Lowe models Giles Deacon's new collection for Debenhams

"She's a super smart, switched on girl and she knows her stuff," Giles told us. "She's really, really good and confident."

The style maestro confessed that he is in awe of Bella and her sister Gigi, revealing that he admires their very different but equally mesmerising personalities.

"[Bella]'s very sassy – it makes her very different to Gigi in that way," he explained. "Gigi's a bit more mellow and ethereal. Bella's great, she's so good."

Giles spoke about Bella Hadid who walked in his LFW show

The British designer described his admiration for Gigi's work ethic, making a surprising revelation about one of the blonde beauty's projects alongside her increasingly hectic modelling career.

"Did you know Gigi's training to be a forensic scientist?" he asked. "She's in year two – how much she's at college I don't know, but they're very academic."

Gigi isn't the first model who has been balancing a career in the world of fashion alongside getting an education. Former Victoria's Secret angel Karlie Kloss recently began a course at NYU, even receiving a letter of recommendation from none other than supermodel Christy Turlington, an alumni of the prestigious school.

"The whole idea of believing I could go to college, and model, comes straight from Christy," said Karlie. "It's a lot to take on, but she did it. But I may ask for help with homework."
