Here are a few pics from the press review of the Hello My Name is Paul Smith show. It is the first major exhibition of the designer’s work and will be held at London’s Design Museum until March 2014.

Significant spaces such as Paul Smith’s first shop (measuring 3×3 metres) or Smith’s eclectic design studio, are replicated in full scale models, giving a more intimate insight into one of the UK’s biggest fashion labels. The show opens today and there’s also a series of related talks over the next few months:
