"Fuori Salone" Britishness

 Paul Smith, the English fashion designer, has cooperated with Moroso and Icon magazine the exhibition "British Design Embassy" on Made in England creativity during the International Furniture Fair in Milan.   Smith said: "The week of Salone del Mobile is the Design event most important in the world and I am very happy to represent England here". He selected the best names of English Style, including new talents like Pinch.
Exceptional background was the Modern Art Gallery at the Neo-classical
"Villa Reale"  in Milan.
