After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 1992, Giles worked with Jean Charles De Castelbajac in Paris for 2 years. From 1998 until 2002 he was a designer at Bottega Veneta and the Gucci Group. In February 2004, Giles presented his first collection at London Fashion Week at the Chelsea Pensioner's Club at the Chelsea Royal Hospital. The show was styled by Katie Grand with music by Steve Mackey of Pulp and lighting by John Akehurst. Models included Karen Elson, Eva Herzigova and Nadja Auerman. The collection was featured in American, British, Japanese, Italian and French Vogue, as well as W, Harper's Bazaar, POP and i-D and was bought by Harvey Nichols, Liberty and Selfridges. In November 2004 Giles was awarded 'Best New Designer' at the British Fashion Awards. This was followed by Giles being awarded the Elle 'Best New Designer' award in February 2005. In November 2006 Giles was awarded 'British Designer of the Year' at the British Fashion Awards.
London Fashion Week
London Fashion Week (LFW) is one of the highest profile fashion events in the world and one of the ‘big four’ international catwalk influencers. The event is organised by the British Fashion Council (BFC) and funded by a number of sponsors (including principal sponsor Vodafone). LFW puts London and British fashion firmly on the global stage; it is estimated that orders of over £100m are placed during LFW each season - the International Guest Programme alone generates over £50m of orders. Over 5,000 visitors attend: buyers, TV & radio crews, journalists and photographers. Media coverage equals or exceeds most major news and international sporting events.
