E027 Designing for Paul Smith with Alan Aboud

January 23rd 2020

E027 features Vince Frost in conversation with designer Alan Aboud, the ex-creative director of Paul Smith and founder of Aboud + Aboud.

In episode 27 of the Design Your Life Podcast Vince speaks to Alan Aboud one of the most well-known creative directors in the fashion industry. He worked alongside Sir Paul Smith for 25 years constructing the unique look and feel of the iconic brand including the world-renowned use of the Multi-stripe design.

At just 23 years of age he set up his creative agency alongside his friend and fellow Saint Martin’s student and photographer Sandro Sodano. Over the course of 20 years the pair worked extensively across fashion and lifestyle brands such as Levi's, H&M and River island.

Now with a focus on creative consultancy he has rebranded as Aboud + Aboud working with various fashion agencies across editorial, advertising and film.


On the next episode of Design Your Life I’ll be chatting to Sydney based hairdresser and sustainability focused entrepreneur Paul Frasca.
