Paul Smith Junior
Paul Smith opened his first shop in 1970. He started to take evening classes for tailoring and with the help of his girlfriend (now wife) Pauline Denyer (an RCA fashion graduate) Paul was able to create what he wanted. By 1976 Paul showed his first menswear collection in Paris under the Paul Smith label.
Now in business for over 40 years Paul Smith had established himself as the pre-eminent British designer, even receiving a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in 2000.
