Join the beloved British fashion designer Sir Paul Smith for an intimate lunchtime conversation with the design journalist Aimee Farrell (The Financial Times, The New York Times, Vogue).
This one-off, in-person talk will explore Sir Paul Smith’s connection to the Kettle’s Yard House and gallery, and the influence of its founder Jim Ede on Smith’s own creative journey, from the design of his home interiors to his passion for art and collecting.
This talk is the first in a series titled My Kettle’s Yard delving into the inspirational power of Kettle’s Yard beyond fine art, within the creative spheres of fashion, interior decoration and design.
