Category: Fashion & Lifestyle Date: Monday, 01 January 0001 Renowned designer and internationally adored fashion expert Paul Smith has consented for the public to have a special look at his inspiration in a new exhibition taking place at the Design Museum this November. From the 15th, visitors will have the opportunity to explore Smith's success story, charting his progress all the way from a menial job at a clothing warehouse in Nottingham to owner of a style empire with stores across the globe. The exhibits will of course feature Smith's hallmark of British eccentricity, including Union Jack lined jackets and brogues with neon-bright laces. The designer explained his love for unconventional styles - even in his workplace - during an interview for the exhibition premiere. "I like things that don't go together. By combining odd fabrics and things on my office walls, I might get an idea for a clothing combination like tweed and silk," he commented. If you have a similar love for style, be sure to book into the Montague on the Gardens. No two rooms are the same, and the halls are decorated with an assortment of knick-knacks that we feel Smith would certainly approve of. Book in with the Live Like Royalty package for that extra bit of luxury.
