Fashion Designer Paul Smith on Fashion Design courses; 1984

British Fashion Designer, Paul Smith, inside his own fashion boutique in Covent Garden. Paul Smith speaks about British fashion courses, and the need to be taught both the commercial, as well as the creative side. Paul comments, "What I think we have to learn about, in this country, is, to make the industry aware of design, but also, knowing how to use design fully. Er, you see the colleges at the moment are turning out fantastic students that know how to cut patterns, and how to work knitting machines etc. etc. But, there's very little, um, effort out into how to run a business, or be involved in business, or the commercial aspect of, er, of, of the fashion industry. It's started to change, and it is, the better colleges are including fashion, um, apart from just fashion, they're including Business Studies, but it's really very small, I think, yet, y'know, I think it's something they should improve on really."
