THE ENGLISH ARE COMING: “It was Worth, an Englishman, who created couture in France,” Pierre Bergé declared Tuesday night in Paris, as he presented an award as president of France’s National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts to Giles Deacon, the second British designer in a row to win the accolade. Thanks to a grant of 160,000 euros, or $233,470 at current exchange, Deacon is staging his spring fashion show in Paris on Oct. 8. “It’s a huge honor for me,” said Deacon. “Hopefully it’s going to be a great season.” Fellow Brit Gareth Pugh won the accolade in 2008. Jeremy Scott was among the guests at the 20th-anniversary award ceremony, before flying back to Los Angeles to work on his new Adidas collection. Scott said he has also designed a special edition bag for French luxury goods company Longchamp to celebrate the association’s anniversary.
