Scottish womenswear designer Jonathan Saunders has won one of the most prestigious accolades in British fashion.

The British Fashion Council (BFC) announced that the Glasgow School of Art graduate is the winner of this year's BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund.

The award, which is now in its third year, was established to enhance the reputation of fashion's rising stars and assist in the development of their businesses. It includes a £200,000 prize and access to mentors from across the industry.

Mr Saunders graduated from Glasgow School of Art and then Central St Martin's fashion college in London before setting up his own eponymous label.

An expert in printed textiles, he is known for his innovative use of patterned fabric.

He has also collaborated with brands such as Topshop and American brand Target.

He said: "I'm so happy about winning the fund. The last 12 months have been an exciting time for me and my team and I'm very proud of all their hard work. We have many exciting plans for the near future and this, along with the support network provided by the BFC, will enable us to achieve our goals."

The BFC has also announced that it will develop a bespoke mentoring programme, tailored specifically to help Mr Saunders over the next year.

Caroline Rush, chief executive of the BFC, said: "The BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund is aimed to assist our very exceptional British designers who, during the application process, show that they have the potential and business acumen to take the development of their brand to the next step and make the transition to progress their business into a commercial global fashion brand.

"The panel felt that this really is Jonathan's moment and he truly deserves to be the recipient of the fund prize."
