Scottish born print designer Jonathan Saunders graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1999 with a BA in Printed Textiles, going on to graduate from Central Saint Martin’s in 2002 with an MA with distinction in Printed Textiles. Saunders skill in colour and textiles has seen him win several awards including Lancôme Colour Awards, 2002, Scottish Fashion Awards - Designer of the Year, 2010, Elle - Designer of the Year Awards, 2012 and most recently the Vogue Fashion Fund Award in partnership with the British Fashion Council. Saunders also achieved his second British Vogue cover in September 2012, an incredible accolade for a non-advertiser. Following nine on schedule shows in London, Jonathan Saunders then moved his catwalk show to New York in February 2008 and has presented three show’s to date as part of New York Fashion week. As a special invitation from the BFC for SS10, September 2009 fashion week, Jonathan Saunders presented back in London for the 25th anniversary of London fashion week and has been showing in London since. Saunders uses traditional silk screening techniques, developing the concept of engineering prints around pattern pieces. In effect each garment has its own specifically designed print rather that one standard print being used throughout a collection. Saunders uses up to twenty silk screens per design and will have as many as twenty prints within one collection, thus individualising his pieces and creating a visually exciting collection.
