Scottish media opportunity – filming and photography

Global design icon, Paul Smith, will return to The Lighthouse in Glasgow this week, Wednesday 24 February, to give a talk to 200 design students and young designers (12-1pm) and then a public book signing (1.30-2.30). The talk forms part of the activities around Hello, My Name is Paul Smith exhibition at The Lighthouse, Glasgow.

Scottish media is invited to attend a filming/photo opportunity at 11.45am of Paul giving the talk to students. We will also organise students to pose with Paul in the exhibition prior to the talk. We’d be happy to work with your requirements. Alternatively you may wish to send a photographer to take pictures of the public book signing.

About the exhibition:

Debuted at the Design Museum in London in 2013 and touring in 2015 to Modemuseum Hasselt in Belgium, Hello, My Name is Paul Smith invites you into Paul Smith’s world; a world of fashion, creation, inspiration, collaboration, wit and beauty.

The exhibition is supported by Sony and The Herald, Creative Scotland and Glasgow City Council.

It draws on Paul’s personal archive, from the company’s beginnings in Nottingham to its international prominence today. The exhibition will explore how the designer’s unique creative intuition, together with an understanding of the roles of designer and retailer, have laid the foundations for the company’s lasting success and offer a unique insight into the magnificent mind of Paul Smith.

The talk and book signing form part of the travelling exhibition programme for ‘Hello, My Name is Paul Smith’, which opened at The Lighthouse on 21 January and will close on 20 March.
