Since this original design formerly know as "M46 & M47", in two sizes, now called Hutchence & Michael, was first designed by Paul Taylor in the 1993 where it was soon after snapped up by Michael Hutchence on his visit to the then Paul Taylor's showroom. This was located in the centre of the once "fashion precinct" of Sydney's Paddington, then known by all to be the "Golden Mile"! How things have changed!
The designer modified this design over the decades to bring it in line with what was relevant for the differing periods.
Paul being a massive fan of Michael Hutchence & INXS had the pleasure of watching both he & INXS perform at the 1991 Wembley Stadium concert to capture one of the biggest global sensations at the height of their powers. "The Live Baby Live concert in London was certainly a night to remember".
