BRIGHT BE­GIN­NINGS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News -

After clos­ing shop late last year, Bri­tish de­signer Jonathan Saun­ders has found new be­gin­nings as Diane von Fursten­berg’s new­est chief cre­ative of­fi­cer. While it won’t be un­til this Septem­ber for his de­but col­lec­tion with the Amer­i­can brand, get ahead of the game with these need-to-know facts. Grow­ing up, his par­ents had hoped for him to be­come a car­pen­ter. “My early life was all Bi­bles and brown fur­ni­ture,” he once men­tioned. “Any­thing ma­te­ri­al­is­tic or friv­o­lous was frowned upon.” In 2003, Saun­ders caught the at­ten­tion of the late de­signer Alexan­der McQueen, and cre­ated the iconic bird-of­par­adise print for McQueen’s Spring/ Sum­mer ’03 show. Wom­enswear isn’t his only pas­sion. The Bri­tish de­signer once de­signed a lux­u­ri­ous swim­ming pool for Ja­maica’s ex­trav­a­gant five-star ho­tel, Sen­satori Re­sort.
