I went to college in Derby UK, next to Nottingham. In my final year Spring 97 Paul held a small presentation for fashion grads from Derby and Nottingham. He spent 2 hours covering in personal detail how he got into fashion, built his business, how he bartered with a farmer to rent the store on Floral Street when that part of London was a wasteland etc.
He was a super nice guy, very gracious and kind. It's characters like him that prove you don't have to be a "Mega Ass Hole Of Mythical Proportions" to succeed in the rag trade.
A great inspiration!
