On June 22, the young designers joined Smith at his Milan showroom, to coincide with the Milan Expo and Milan Men’s Fashion Week. The day was focused on promoting the designers' brands and expanding their distribution globally.

Smith has a global retail network of wholesale and franchise partners in more than seventy countries worldwide, and the opportunity to take advantage of it should be hugely beneficial for the emerging designers.

Paul Smith commented: "As I’ve gained more and more experience, I’ve always tried to give back to the industry. The event in Milan is a natural progression of this and the three designers we’re working with are very talented guys, who I think will do well in the future."

Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the BFC, adds: "We’re delighted to be partnering with Paul Smith at the Milan Expo to showcase three of London’s most exciting emerging menswear talents, Agi & Sam, Lee Roach and Craig Green. This partnership will allow the designers the invaluable opportunity to present their SS16 collections to an audience of press and buyers at Milan Fashion Week."
