Designer Thomas Paul
New York City born and based designer Thomas Paul might have gotten his break interning with DKNY during the 1990s, but nowadays he’s more known for the impact his designs wield in the textile, pattern and tabletop worlds.
Early on Thomas Paul developed the talent to look beyond what is immediate, familiar and readily available to explore what is unfamiliar, unknown and yet to be achieved. This former neckwear designer now has a flourishing business based upon his unique skill at sourcing, creating and using beautiful prints.
This was not always smooth sailing: Paul’s first independent venture, a neckwear collection, died soon after it was born. However, Thomas Paul didn’t dwell on it, deciding instead to swim through failure’s storm and find himself a new breeze toward fame.
