Giles Deacon to show at Pitti W

    British womenswear designer Giles Deacon will be the headline guest at the fifth edition of Pitti W in January. The prestigious catwalk event will mark Deacon’s first presentation in Italy.
    “Giles is among the designers who are contributing to changing women’s fashion,” said Raffaello Napoleone, chief executive of Pitti Immagine, the organisation behind a collective of Florentine trade fairs including Pitti W, Pitti Uomo, and Pitti Bimbo, among others. “And, that is something that we are really interested to follow by presenting collection previews at Pitti W.”
    Deacon will follow in the footsteps of former Pitti W headline guests including Diane von Furstenberg, Giambattista Valli, and Proenza Schouler.
    A long time supporter of London Fashion Week, Deacon hosted his first runway event at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month.
    Now in its fifth season, Pitti W is an exhibition dedicated to designer womenswear pre-collections, or cruise collections. Hosted in Florence, Italy, the show runs alongside Pitti Uomo. The next edition of Pitti W will run from 12-15 January 2010. For more details log on to
