EARNING THEIR STRIPES:Sir Paul Smith isn’t content with building his own brand — he’s supporting a new generation of designers, too. Smith has funded a new scholarship exchange program, which will offer four students at the U.K.’s Nottingham Trent University — located in Smith’s hometown — the opportunity to spend 10 weeks studying design at the Bunka Women’s University in Tokyo. In turn, Smith will provide funding for two Japanese students to study for a yearlong master’s degree in fashion futures at Nottingham Trent University. The program will run for an initial five-year period, and the first group of students began the exchange program in September. “I am very pleased to be in a position where I can give what is hopefully an exciting opportunity to students,” said Smith. “I think one of the most important experiences in life is travel and the way it can open your eyes to the world.”
