Scottish-born fashion designer Jonathan Saunders graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1999 with a BA in Printed Textiles, later completing with distinction the Central St Martins' Printed Textiles MA in 2002. Having set up his own eponymous label, Saunders went on to show for nine seasons at London Fashion Week before transferring to New York in February 2008. Saunders has returned to the LFW schedule following an invite in September 2009 from the British Fashion Council to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Approaching print with an artisanal hand, Saunders' prints are lauded for their intense richness (with up to twenty silk screens used in each one); a somatic quality achieved through a rigorous and sensual approach to cut and a constantly evolving and emotive colour palette.
