Jonathan Anderson 2016 Interview

Jonathan Anderson 2016 Interview

Jonathan Anderson launched his own label JW Anderson in 2008 at the age of just 24, and followed this with a capsule collection for women, which was snapped up by Liberty London. In 2012, Topshop came calling, leading to two highly publicised JW Anderson x Topman collaborations which put his label firmly on the map as a youth-centric brand with a discerning celebrity following. Accolades followed in quick succession. That same year, Jonathan Anderson won the Emerging Talent Award for Ready-to-Wear at the British Fashion Awards; at the event the following year, he scooped the New Establishment Award. After the first of these triumphs, the designer received a phone call from Donatella Versace; by the following spring, he had unveiled his first collection for Versus, the Milan house’s younger, kickier line.
