Patrick Grant, menswear designer and judge on the BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee, shares his experiences studying for an Executive MBA at Oxford’s Said Business School, and talks about how he became an award-winning designer.

During his MBA studies, Patrick bought Saville Row bespoke tailor Norton & Sons, quickly turning the business around into a successful company. In 2010, he was awarded the British Fashion Council’s Menswear Designer of the Year award after relaunching E. Tautz & Sons, and was a recipient of the 2015 BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund. He is also Creative Director for Hammond & Co., a diffusion line available at Debenhams.

In this podcast, he discusses his career as a designer and his new social venture, Community Clothing, which aims to help Britain’s ailing manufacturing industry by using spare capacity for a new affordable clothing range, as well as offering advice to prospects and students who are considering a career as an entrepreneur.
