Firstly, we have to say a big ‘Congratulations!’ to Jonathan Saunders. It was announced this week that the Scottish designer is the winner of the 2012 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. The £200,000 cash prize is bound to accelerate his business over the next year and we can’t wait to see all his new designs for his mainline collection.
Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman said. “His recent collections have shown that he is a designer who can provide beautiful clothes that women enjoy wearing and he is in a great position to build on his current success.” There were nine shortlisted designers; Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou, Richard Nicoll, Roksanda llincic, Marios Schwab, Zoe Jordan and Meadham Kirchhoff, as well as footwear label Nicholas Kirkwood. Well done Jonathan!

But we are only just starting to think about spring, so take a peek at the lookbook shots which give you a feel for each of the designers’ spring/summer collections…
