The success of Paul Smith clothing
The successful Paul Smith clothing began its journey into the fashion world in 1970 with the opening of a shop in Nottingham. Six years later, the English designer first showed his menswear collection at a fashion show in Paris. Since then, there was no turning back and the designer opened retail shops in the UK, Japan, India, Belgium, and Dubai. The secret? a mixture of classic and eccentric designs and a well-managed business. Paul Smith is a respectable designer and a retailer.
At the moment, there are 12 collections of the Paul Smith line:
