Nathan Jenden has spent the past decade perfecting his work alongside the likes of Diane Von Furstenburg, while catering to a client list which includes heavy hitters such as Madonna.
After studying at Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, Nathan got his first taste of the fashion world through an apprenticeship with John Galliano. Moving to New York in 1998, he spent three years as design director with Daryl K before taking over the role of creative director for Diane Von Furstenberg, helping her build the DVF brand.
He launched his own label during New York Fashion Week 200. By his third collection he had Philip Treacy on board for the headpieces and Christian Louboutin doing the heels – an impactful collaboration which got him noticed by the International Herald Tribune and US mag Women’s Wear Daily.
Madonna proclaimed it to be her favourite London show, leading Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle to call in pieces.
For autumn/winter 2009 Nathan, who describes his look as tailored and modern, has been inspired by Lewis Carroll, ice cream and microscopes.
