Gareth Pugh was a swot!

Continuing today’s careers seminar on How To Get Ahead In Fashion, we present a lesson from maverick talent Gareth Pugh. The goth couturier’s Spring 2010 collection may just have gone down a storm in Paree (where he was presenting for the fourth season), but seemingly his destiny was already mapped out at a Paris Fashion Week many moons ago.

Speaking exclusively to Grazia, Pugh recalls “[six years ago] when I studying at St Martins, we had to go to Paris Fashion Week to see if we could get into any shows. I remember when we got back to London everyone was raving about it, they were all like, ‘I saw four shows!’ ‘I got into seven!’”. Gareth had seen 38 shows. And just four years later, he was showing his own collection on the Paris catwalks. Swot.
