After graduating from the prestigious fashion program at the London College of Fashion, Irish-born design wunderkind J.W.Anderson (neé Jonathan William Anderson) got his start in 2008 with a namesake menswear collection. After gaining a cult following of female fans, who donned his immaculately tailored menswear, Anderson released a capsule collection garnering worldwide critical and commercial success. Playing with structural silhouettes, androgyny, hard and soft textures, and seductive architectural fits with a whimsical playfulness, Anderson was the winner of the 2012 British Fashion Award, taking the Emerging Talent for Ready-to-Wear.
