Today was the final day of our residency at the House of Grazia at Matches No.23 (sob), but don't worry, we went out with a bang. Designer Jonathan Saunders was in the building fresh from his triumphant Autumn Winter 2013 show at the weekend and as well as sitting down with Grazia's Editor-in-chief Jane Bruton in front of a group of eager guests he also took the time to answer your questions on Twitter. You can follow the whole chat below and Tweet any responses with #showusyoursaunders.
@TollyDollyPosh: What would be your biggest tip for an aspiring Fashion Designer? Tolly :) (Age 12)
Jonathan Saunders: Have a point of difference, think about who you are and what you want to be. It’s all about confidence.
@ministrywaxing: What is your favourite trend from the Autumn Winter 2013 shows?
Jonathan Saunders: There's a darkness, sexiness, underlying kinkiness to Autumn WInter 2013. It's less precious and a bit undone.
@kaykaymok: Do you have an ideal woman in mind when you're designing?
Jonathan Saunders: I don't have a muse. I listen to the women around me, how they feel, and what they want.
@ashleyag1: Who or what influences you the most when designing your collection?
Jonathan Saunders: I always start with colour and fabrication. Eventually a character emerges; this season she's a '50's Pin Up.
@alice_weld: What are your key pieces for Autum Winter 2013 and how do you play around with accessorising them?
Jonathan Saunders: It's become about separates which allow you to experiment with colour; either a knit or a skirt or both together.
@FashionPopcorn: How does living in London inspire your work?
Jonathan Saunders: There's a huge energy in London. I'm drawn to things like the architecture, the colours and the people.
@ashleyag1: With bloggers sitting front row at shows, do you think that fashion has become too accessible?
Jonathan Saunders: Social media has democratised the industry which is healthy, and it's inspiring to hear what people think.
