- London, April 20 (IANS) British fashion designer Giles Deacon's new collection is inspired by filmmaker Tim Burton's fantastical universe. The collection brings out the relationship between dark and light.
"I wanted to do something really flamboyant. It felt very right for us to do that," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Deacon as saying.
"I've always liked the Burtonesque world of things - the light and dark, the serious and the not-so-serious. It's just kind of life in general really," he added.
After establishing his label in 2003, Deacon plans to open more stores across the globe.
"I'd love to open a couple of stores and see the whole Giles world together. Our couture client base is also growing - I was just out in New York, where we sold really well," he said.
"In the space of 15 minutes, customers can decide to drop upwards of $30,000," he added.
