The Man Behind the Business:
The first of five children, Mark Anthony Scott was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica and raised by his Grandparents, Renford and Enita Wallace, in the neighbouring parish, Trelawny.
At an early age it was discovered that Mark Anthony had an eye for colour, detail, style and fashion, which was encouraged by his grandmother.
On leaving High School, Mark Anthony worked with his uncle- Neville Wallace, in the family’s business, FC’s House of Fashion, constructing various types of garments. During the tenure with his uncle, he developed his designing skills and began creating and constructing his own clothes. Soon after, Mark Anthony went out on his own and started what is now Mark Anthony Designs.
A Justice of the Peace and a Trained Mediator, Mark Anthony is certified by the Human Employment and Research Training Trust (H.E.A.R.T.) in Garment Construction and certified by Creative Production and Training Centre (CPTC) in Techniques in Video Production and Video Editing.
Building an Empire:
In January 2009, Mark Anthony Designs opened it’s door showcasing one of a kind bold, custom made shirts. What started out as simply a leap of faith, is today a thriving business creating unique, chic and customisable designs for the confident and bold male including high quality wear trousers, ties & suits, shorts, and accessories to complete the desired look.
Mark Anthony has also done numerous prestigious Fashion Shows in Jamaica, The Caribbean, North America, and was the 2013 winner of Connecticut Fashion week.
The brand has since expanded to include Mark Anthony Home and Mark Anthony Woman, bringing all the brands under the family group umbrella of Mark Anthony Collections.
Charting New Waters:
As part of its mandate, Mark Anthony Designs is forever charting new waters and with the newest addition to the line of products, the mission of the brand continues to be fulfilled.
