Born in Magherafelt, Northern Ireland in 1984, Jonathan William Anderson originally wanted to pursue a career in acting. Whilst studying drama he discovered a love for stage costume and went on to study menswear at the London College of Fashion. His collection made its debut at London Fashion Week in 2007. J.W.Anderson thereafter embarked upon a natural progression into womenswear alongside his formidably esoteric accessories collection.
SS13 by J.W.Anderson is entitled "The Treatment Room". One can almost feel the results of JWA at work in his fashion laboratory. As expected there are the striking and surprising experiments in fabrics, finishes and gender. Yet there is a startling femininity about this collection, almost by accident J.W.Anderson has created a modern day pretty.
