Longtime favorite Jonathan Joseph Peters will once again bring his signature mix of wearable, avant garde fashion to StyleWeek, showing his collection during the closing Saturday night event. For his January show, Jonathan will be collaborating with local artist Phil Shaw, who is designing prints for the collection. “The clothing will honor my nod to romanticism while embracing a strong forward view,” he says.
Since appearing in season seven of Project Runway, Jonathan has shown new collections every year, including at New York Fashion Week, StyleWeek, Portland Fashion Week and StyleWeek Resort in Miami. He also works to promote emerging designers through StyleWeek PR. “My work is still quite experimental,” he says. “I take chances on colors, textile combinations and processing my fabrics.”
All of Jonathan’s work is infused with imagination and humor, and his Fall/Winter 2013 show will be no different. Expect to see colorful fabrics, unusual combinations and versatile separates. “I picture these clothes to be worn by a colorful she-spy character,” he says. “She is spirited and humorous, but with a lethal undercurrent.” Jonathan Joseph Peters will be presenting at 9pm on Saturday, February 2, at the Providence Biltmore.
