Northern Irish designer Jonathan Anderson established JW Anderson in 2008.
At first an elaborate collection of accessories quickly attracted attention, enabling the fledgling label to show on-schedule during 2008’s London Fashion Week.
Its unique design aesthetic offers a modern interpretation of masculinity and femininity by creating thought-provoking silhouettes through a conscious cross-pollination between menswear and womenswear elements. This idiosyncratic perspective, which earned the label a cult following, prompted JW Anderson to present a women’s capsule collection in 2010.
JW Anderson has evolved into an internationally renowned and award-winning brand. The British designer has made waves with his gender-bending work for his eponymous label and was named creative director of Loewe in 2013. Most recently, at the 2017 British Fashion Awards the brand received the award of ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year’.
