Jonathan Anderson/ J.W. Anderson is the handsome Northern Irish designer who has, in what must be record time, become an international major player with a powerful influence on fashion at every level. His good looks would have made him hot in Hollywood had he not switched from studying drama to menswear at LCF, graduating in 2005 and launching his eponymous label in 2008. Known for his clean, sharp aesthetic and blurring gender lines, Jonathan became close friends with Donatella Versace whilst designing for Versus and kitted out the high-street in kilts and tartan with his Topshop collection. He’s secretly obsessed with Duncan Grant and his favourite record is Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass, who also provided the soundtrack to his autumn/winter 12 show. It September 2013, it announced that Jonathan would join luxury fashion house Loewe as Creative Director.
