Paul Smith is one of Britain’s leading fashion designers and renowned for his idiosyncratic take on traditional British styling - 'classic with a twist'. He has the ability to anticipate and spark trends, not only in fashion but often in the wider context of popular culture.
In recognition of his dedication to British fashion, he was knighted in the 2001 Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to the Industry and remains fully involved in his business. There are over 150 Paul Smith shops around the world. This year, in addition to Mainland China, Paul Smith is opening new shops in Amsterdam, Melbourne, Moscow, Mumbai and Singapore.
