JW Anderson is a British fashion label, founded by Irish designer Jonathan William Anderson in 2008. JW Anderson started in menswear, adding womenswear in 2010. Since 2012 onwards, the brand and its designer have collaborated with a number of retail fashion brands, such as Topshop and Versace.

Anderson is originally from Northern Ireland. After first pursuing a career in acting he subsequently fell in love with stage costumes and went on to graduate in menswear from the London College of Fashion. JW Anderson's accolades include: British Fashion Awards for ‘Emerging Talent, Ready-to-Wear' (2012), ‘The New Establishment Award' (2013) and 'Menswear Designer of the Year' (2014). At the 2015 British Fashion Awards the brand received a historic double award for ‘Menswear' and ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year', the first time any brand has ever won both awards at the same time. At the 2017 British Fashion Awards the brand received 'Womenswear Designer of the Year'.

Luxury group LVMH acquired a minority stake in the brand in 2013, and appointed Anderson the creative director of Spanish brand Loewe. Anderson was previously creative director of Sunspel from 2010 to 2014.
