Giles Deacon is known for his cheeky designs, but did he take them too far with his spring 2014 collection?
At his London Fashion Week show on Monday, Deacon presented a diverse array of designs screenprinted with familiar fashion images.
One of the more famous photographs he used looks like an outtake from Prada's 1997 campaign, photographed by Glen Luchford, and featuring model Amber Valletta.
The image was utilised in the show's first three looks — printed onto both opaque and translucent silks which were fashioned into three different dress designs.
A representative for Giles confirmed to MailOnline on Monday afternoon that the image in question was in fact the work of Luchford.
She stressed that Deacon and the photographer "are very good friends," and that she was "sure" that Deacon obtained proper usage rights before creating the collection's screenprinted fabric.

Romance at John Rocha
PPQ might have made headlines with their red carpet frocks on day one, but day two of London Fashion Week proved to be one of the best yet, with Julien Macdonald, Zoe Jordan J.W Anderson and David Koma among the highlights.
Koma, although still in love with architectural sihouettes, toned down his fiercely futuristic aesthetic, adding pale blush pink and bold blue to his palette and combining oriental influences with Riviera stripes.
The result was tough chic with an infusion of elegance — a combination particularly noticeable in his dresses, which he continues to do brilliantly well.
Another to unveil a collection crammed with stunning gowns was John Rocha whose beautifully romantic collection bloomed with roses, most of which were splashed across delicate chiffon gowns.

Queen of prints Mary Katrantzou unveils rainbow collection
Mary Katrantzou is synonymous with bright, bold prints and her spring/summer14 collection reasserted her love of all things graphic.
Mary's collection, which she showcased in Westminster today, was inspired by a simple pattern on three pairs of shoes: a brogue, a plimsoll, and an evening slipper.
Her thematic collections revolve around an icon of luxury, in this case three of her favourite shoes, and has previously based her collections on perfume bottles, eighteenth century society paintings, and interiors.
The Greek designer transferred her inspiration into a rainbow-coloured collection of floral patterns often embellished with Swarovski crystals for maximum impact.
