Giles Deacon wants to continue having fun with fashion.

The designer says he has big plans for the future but admits the most important thing is to enjoy himself.

He said: ''I'd love to open a couple of stores and see the whole Giles world together. Our couture client base is also growing - I was just out in New York, where we sold really well. In the space of 15 minutes, customers can decide to drop upwards of $30,000. Apart from that, I guess I just wantto carry on having fun with my friends. I remember Tom Ford saying, 'The best bit of advice I can give to you is work hard and be nice to people.' I can't imagine it being any other way.''

Despite his success, Giles insists he will never be a diva and can't understand why people would ever act like that.

He told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''I find the idea of the gilded cage - pampered designer sitting in his ivory tower - really dated. That unapproachability is nuts. When people start being like that, I'm like, 'Get a grip.' ''
