“I wanted something graphic and really strong, but not romantic, and not aggressive,” said Giles Deacon after his show. “A good smashed window can be nice — it has some wonderful refractional qualities.” The designer took his smashed-glass motif and turned it into a print for long and short dresses, some of which had origamilike folds at the top. This dramatic, highly embellished collection also featured short dresses with delicate tiers of printed and pleated net, ostrich-feather tufts and beading. Long gowns were made from tiers of double duchesse satin laser-cut into a similar shattered pattern, some worn with stiff net skirts underneath, while others were adorned with blue crystal embroidery and had stiff net underskirts lending a whiff of modern-day Cinderella.
