(Oh Anna and Giles, well played)
Giles Deacon has quite the hand stacked against him with his premiere collection for Emanuel Ungaro. The once hot, hot, hot house is now most noted for its recent revolving door of designers (Miss Lohan the most notorious of all).

He wisely showcased looks with signature lace, feathers and embellishments (let us recall Ungaro's heyday was the heady 80's)

And having VOGUE Nippon Fashion Director and style icon, Anna Dello Russo, model in your show is a pretty loud vote of confidence you're doing something right.
Bonne chance, Monsieur! I will say a little fashion prayer for you.
