Paul Smith Jackets and Coats – ‘Designer Comes With No Career Plans’

In 1946 (age 67) Paul Smith is a British based fashion designer who combined commercial success with critical credibility. He established his fashion label after abandoning his dream of being a competitive stylist. His brand is known for doing classic clothing with a “twist’. He began his modest beginnings at the age of fifteen when his father insisted him to work at a clothing warehouse. His only consolation being able to cycle to work. This however ended  due to a tragic accident. During his recovery he made friends who inspired him into the colorful world of fashion and design. His first shop was opened on  Floral  Street, in his native Nottingham,in 1970 with encouragement from his girlfriend (now wife) Pauline. He also  took classes for tailoring and with the help of his wife who’s an RCA (art graduate) he excelled. In 1976 he showed his first menswear in Paris. Today he has stores in  75  countries and has 13 different collections. He was also knighted by the queen in 2000 who professed a liking for his ties. He is both designer and retailer, and continues to be an integral part of the company and is involved in every aspect of the business and as a result Paul Smith retains a personal touch often lots in companies of similar size.
