AN EVENING WITH PAUL SMITH
Paul Smith is not only one of the most famous English Fashion Designers but also a successful businessman – starting with one shop in 1970, he has now more than 300 shops worldwide with an annual turnover of £200 million.
The story of Paul Smith and The B&C Club started last year in his studio. This time he will welcome us in his beautiful flagship boutique. He will explain how he built his spectacular reputation based on his extravagant style, his work on perfect tailoring and his bright colours.
Sir Paul Smith, CBE, RDI, is Britain’s foremost designer, the indisputable don of British fashion. He is renowned for his creative spirit, which combines tradition and modernity. Youthful but elegant, quirky but classic, it is an assortment of sharp plain suits set off by inspired prints and flashes of colour, full of appealing contradictions.
He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000 for his services to British fashion.
Famous for its clothing and accessories collections, Paul Smith specialises in an inventive use of traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge design to create beautifully-made, desirable, modern pieces.
Paul Smith is a tastemaker – a leader of British and international design trends. With an enthusiasm for eclectic cultural references and idiosyncratic combinations of pattern and colour, applied with understatement, Paul Smith expresses a truly contemporary aesthetic.
Paul Smith is loved across the world – its customers range from the creative community to students, and from Hollywood actors and pop stars to business professionals. From its origins in one small shop in Nottingham, England, in 1970, Paul Smith has grown into a global business, selling to five continents with over 300 shops. Starting with one men’s collection, the business has grown to comprise collections for men and women and children, including, shoes, accessories, fragrance, home furnishings and jeans.
