Jonathan Saunders Are Looking For A Fashion Apprentice
About the company:
In September 2006 Saunders was awarded The Fashion Enterprise Award by The British Fashion Council and then won the Elle Style Awards Designer of the Year in 2007.
In February 2008 Saunders showed his collection for the first time in New York, following nine seasons showing on schedule in London. Recent collaborations have included collections for Topshop and U.S. brand Target.
One of Saunders’ trademarks has been his use of traditional silk screening techniques, developing the concept of engineering prints around pattern pieces. Whilst print is still integral to his designs, more recently he has focused on the development of an architectural, clean form – an aesthetic that fits comfortably with his move to show in New York.
