Jonathan Saunders is the latest British designer to announce a return to London Fashion Week this September.
Jonathan Saunders, who has been showing in New York since 2007, joins Burberry, Matthew Williamson and Pringle, in returning to London to help the capital’s fashion week celebrate its 25th birthday.
“The excitement ahead of September continues to grow.”
Harold Tillman, chairman, British Fashion Council
Scottish-born Saunders was a regular on the LFW schedule from February 2003 to September 2007, when he left for New York to build up international business. His design studios have always remained in London and he is best known for his bright print silk dresses.
Saunders said: “I am absolutely delighted to be returning to show in London this September. Showing in New York for the last few seasons has been an amazing experience for me and the business. However London has always been my home and where I have my studio. I am very much looking forward to being part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of London Fashion Week and am grateful to the British Fashion Council [LFW organisers] for the invitation to return.”
BFC chairman Harold Tillman said: “We are delighted that Jonathan has announced his return to London today as part of our 25-year celebrations. The excitement ahead of September continues to grow.”
London Fashion Week will take place from September 18-22 at Somerset House in London.
