Last Friday I had the day off work and went to the HELLO. exhibition by Paul Smith at the Design Museum. I’ve been a fan of Paul Smith for years, I love his designs and his brand’s ethos. When I was at uni, one of his marketing team gave a talk which I attended and it just seemed like a really nice place to work full of inspirational people. Needless to say I was excited to go to the exhibition and be inspired, I’ve not had much inspiration of late!
The exhibition was great, you could feel Paul in the room with you, he’s a master collector and treasures every belonging he has which I think is really something quite special. He encourages everyone to look at everything and anything for inspiration, there’s no right or wrong. I loved learning about his first selling appointment, which was set up in a hotel room, and how his wife taught him all he knows!
Would highly recommend it, I thoroughly enjoyed it and is probably the closest I’m going to get to the man himself!
