Jonathan Saunders likes the stress of his job.
The fashion designer, who is now responsible for six collections a year, has to work around the clock in his London studio to make sure the clothes are perfect but isn't afraid to put in the hours.
He told Grazia magazine: ''I love my job. Otherwise I wouldn't stay here until midnight every day the whole of my life. I'm not going to get out the violins.
''It's not that I have to. It's that I want to. I love the stress of it, trying to do something that maybe doesn't work out at first and then fixing it.''
The designer, who has a team made up of 15 to 20 people at any given time, works on two main womenswear, two main menswear and two pre-collections every year and has revealed the thought behind his autumn/winter '14 womenswear range.
He said: ''It's much meaner this time. I like mean. It's about seeing the beauty in something that isn't obviously precious, which is a funny thing to play with when you're working with luxury.
''It's a bit like, what is expensive? What does expensive look like? To ask that question is my job, I suppose.''
Jonathan is celebrating after the success of his runway shows at London Fashion Week.
He added: ''I love shows. They're the best way to communicate your idea clearly. And when you're trying to do something creative, that's really important.''
