If you've ever wanted a Giles dress, but didn't want to pony up thousands of dollars to own one, here's your chance to make one yourself. It's true! If you have a sewing machine and some basic knowledge of how to use a dress pattern, you can be the proud owner of this fall 2007 Giles dress, which was worn on the runway by the one and only Lara Stone:
How? Well, Giles Deacon is the latest designer—after Alexander McQueen, Martin Margiela, and John Galliano—to partner with SHOWstudio for its Design Download series, which allows readers to download exclusive dress patterns from the designer.
"The purpose of our Design Download series is to give everyone, everywhere, access to amazing high fashion," renowned photographer Nick Knight, founder of SHOWstudio, told WWD. "It's all about demystifying fashion and breaking down the barrier between artist and audience."
