I am looking forward to sitting down to watch BBC2 tonight. in the good old days when I thought I could hack it as a menswear designer, (a dream that didn't really last as long as it should have, but still). I met paul smith, even did some work for his brand involving print designs for mens shirts. it was a long time ago (mid 80's). he impressed me with his calmness before anything was said, he sat down at his desk took out some mini speakers connected them up to a cassette walkman pressed play, closed his eyes and listened to about 5-6 minutes of very calm classical music. in awe I simply sat quietly until he open his eyes looked up at me and said 'ok lets see what you have got'.
BBC2 at 9pm at British Style Genius
