Giles Deacon – Global Fashion Consultant
In his capacity as Global Fashion Consultant, Giles Deacon will unveil a machine-washable capsule collection at the P&G Future Fabrics 2013 event in Milan. Giles will also collaborate with and advise P&G Scientists on the potential of machine-washable fabrics in the fashion industry, and help inform P&G’s fashion-minded approach to designing sophisticated fibre care technologies.
