Jonathan Saunders returns to LFW

Saunders, the Scots-born, London-based print specialist, who decamped to show at New York Fashion Week nearly two years ago, joins Burberry, Matthew Williamson and Pringle who have all decided to return home to show their spring/summer 2010 collections during the 25th anniversary celebrations for London Fashion Week.

In addition to running his own label, Saunders, 31, was also recently appointed the creative director of Italian brand, Pollini.

His own brand received an international boost earlier this year, when America's First Lady, Michelle Obama, wore a Jonathan Saunders dress from his winter 2008/09 collection to a performance by the Alvin Ailey American Dance theatre, in Washington, which she accessorised with a brooch by another young British designer, Richard Nicoll.

Other celebrity fans include the actresses, Charlize Thereon, Sienna Miller and Thandie Newton.

In London his collections are sold at Liberty, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, and Browns.

London Fashion Week will take place from 18th – 22nd September at its new cultural home, Somerset House.
