He later studied fashion design at the London College of Fashion. After graduation, he worked for several fashion houses, including French Connection and Vivienne Westwood. In 1976, he launched his own label with his partner, Pauline Denyer. The Paul Smith label is now a global brand, with over fifty stores worldwide.
