Is he about to become the most in-demand designer of the year?
Comments

When Giles Deacon was photographed leaving Pippa Middleton's London home with a large black dress bag in his arm last November, speculation that he had been tasked with designing her bridal gown soon swirled.

However, according to the Central Saint Martins graduate, the potential partnership is no more than gossip. "I can never really comment on rumours," he told Hello! Fashion this week. "Until things are confirmed it's just rumours."

Although there was no confirmation, Deacon did share his views on Pippa and her older sister Kate's taste in fashion. "I think they've both got divine style," he added. "They're thoroughly modern girls promoting British brands and looking fantastic."

Pippa, who is expected to marry hedge-fund manager James Matthews this year, wouldn't be the first celebrity bride Deacon has worked with. As well as making statement gowns for celebrities like Gwen Stefani and Cate Blanchett, he designed Abbey Clancy's stunning wedding dress in 2011.

Speaking about the process of creating a gown for a wedding, he explained, "It's quite different actually, because someone who comes in for a gown for a red carpet event generally knows exactly what they want and it's very precise. I think when wedding dresses are talked about, every woman has a different set of factors in her mind of what it could be because they've been thinking about it possibly for such a long time."

As leading British designers Jenny Packham and Alexander McQueen are also reportedly in the running to design Pippa's dress, it looks like we might have to wait a while before we get to find out who has landed the all-important job.
