Geoffrey B. Small 110th Paris collection presentation to date and their most ambitious array of new extreme handmade technologies, techniques, fabrications, and shapes from renowned GBS Sartoria workrooms at Cavarzere Venezia which they believe is the most exceptional working designer tailoring team in the world today.

Geoffrey B. Small is a pioneer in avant-garde design and making clothes by hand. Since 1993, he has shown more collections in Paris than any American designer, and his concepts continue to lead the designer industry at the highest level. He began his career in 1976, working as a blue jeans salesclerk for the Gap Stores in Boston. From 1979-1980, after working for three years selling jeans for the Gap Stores and starting a small business with an old Singer sewing machine in his parent's attic making clothes for friends, he was judged a winner from over 34,000 competitors by Bill Blass, Calvin Klein, Geoffrey Beene and Elsa Klensch in the most significant fashion design competitions in North America.

From 1984-1987, he created a national phenomenon in the industry and sold almost one million dollars worth of a single white shirt he designed (“the Ultimate Shirt”) from his house in Newton, Massachusetts, through the pages of American Vogue magazine.

Geoffrey B. Small and his staff pioneered over thirty major recycle design technique innovations later adopted by, and credited to, many others among them Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Comme des Garcons, Dolce & Gabbana, Paul Smith, Dirk Bikkembergs, Helmut Lang, Miguel Adrover, E2, Angelo, and the Great China Wall.
