RIBA North West is hosting a series of talks across July and August aimed at providing architects and graduates in the region with inspiration from a range of award-winning national and international speakers. Each event will feature an individual or practice who will share their experiences within their particular fields of expertise, and highlight that the routes to success within the fields of architecture and design can take many forms.
This is the third event in the series and will take place at Hobs Studio in Manchester with a talk by Patrick Grant. Patrick's career in fashion began in 2005 when he left a career in engineering to become Director at Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons. Three years later he revived the E. Tautz brand to much critical acclaim, including being named 'Menswear Designer of the Year' at the British Fashion Awards in 2010.
Patrick is a regular on television and radio as a commentator on fashion, clothing and textiles. He has written for GQ, The Financial Times and The Times, and is a regular lecturer at schools and colleges, and was made Honorary Professor at Glasgow Caledonian University's School of Business.
