Nathan Jenden has spent the past decade perfecting his work alongside the likes of Diane Von Furstenburg, while catering to a client list which includes heavy hitters such as Madonna.
After studying at Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, Nathan got his first taste of the fashion world through an apprenticeship with John Galliano. Moving to New York in 1998, he spent three years as design director with Daryl K before taking over the role of creative director for Diane Von Furstenberg, helping her build the DVF brand.
Nathan Jenden has designed his own namesake label since 2005. Presenting for the first time in New York since the fall 2006 season, the London native showed androgynous-looking womenswear with equestrian flourishes, like jodhpurs tucked into boots, draping capes, and ruffled blouses peeping out of sharp tuxedo jackets. By his third collection he had Philip Treacy on board for the headpieces and Christian Louboutin doing the heels – an impactful collaboration which got him noticed by the International Herald Tribune and US mag Women’s Wear Daily.
