Who is Gwendoline Christie's partner? They share a common passion

We know Gwendoline Christie mainly thanks to her role in… “Game of Thrones”, where she played Brienne of Tarth – a fearless warrior who swore to protect the daughters of House Stark. Recently we could also see her in a popular series “Wednesday”.

In her private life, however, she prefers to challenge her tailoring skills, and she is supported in this by her long-time partner, Giles Deacon.

Giles Deacon and Gwendoline Christie they met in 2013 through mutual friends and they were united by their common love for fashion. Although Christie does not reveal the details of his relationship, he willingly boasts about his partner as a designer. In 2018, she commented on Deacon's talent.

“I don't think I'll ever stop being impressed by my partner's colossal talent.”

Thanks to his works, which she can wear, she feels “distinguished as a woman”.

So who is Giles Deacon? Even before his relationship with the famous actress, he was recognizable in the fashion world. He trained at Central Saint Martins in London and worked for brands such as Bottega Veneta, Gucci and Emanuel Ungaro, and in 2004 he founded his own brand GILES.

He has dressed many stars over the years, including Cate Blanchett, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kerry Washington, Beyoncé and Kate Hudson. He wore one of his most memorable designs Billy Porter at the 2020 Oscars. Deacon also designed Pippa Middleton's lace dress in 2017.

How does the designer remember his first meeting with the actress? This is what he told Grazia magazine in 2018:

“I met Gwendoline six years ago through a mutual friend and was immediately smitten. For a million different reasons, I thought she was extraordinary. The way she acted was unlike anything I had ever seen before.”

When Christie was cast in the Netflix series “Sandman” as Lucifer, Deacon created her entire wardrobe for the series.

In 2019, Christie starred in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Bridge Theater in London, and Deacon designed the two dresses she wore on stage.

How does the actress evaluate this cooperation?

“It's great to work with someone who knows what your strengths are, who knows how to make you feel confident, who knows how to make you look good. He is an extraordinary person. He works with great sensitivity and is not afraid make women brave and intelligent,” she admitted in an interview with Vougue.
