Jonathan Saunders was born in Glasgow, Scotland, U.K. in 1978. He studied at Central St. Martin's College in London, graduating in 2000.
It was thanks to the London Printworks Trust (where Jonathan also teaches) that his debut catwalk collection got under way in February 2003 at the MotoFashion East event in London.
Saunders is also working for many of the leading designers, he made a contribution to Alexander McQueen's stunning bird-of-paradise prints last summer and he consults for both Pucci and Chloe.
In January 2004 it was announced that Saunders will receive New Generation sponsorship for his Autumn/Winter 2004 collection to be shown during London Fashion week in February 2004.
He showed cape and cocoon dresses, jersey pencil skirts and tiered tunics - all ablaze with graphic prints in rich peacock blue, burn orange, jade and grey. He said he was inspired by Transformers cartoons, Aboriginal art and Avedon photographs. Here on the right is an example of his dresses.
