BRANDON SCOTT creative / production / sales
Brandon studied fashion design at San Francisco State University where he had his first runway show displaying his aesthetic for modern, clean, lines out into the world. He was awarded "Most Marketable Designer" of his senior class. Nice Collective took notice of Brandon's talent and offered him his first job as a design assistant. Over the next year he would gain invaluable experience from one of the most progressive lines to originate from San Francisco.
Shortly after, in 2005, a prominent San Francisco based designer, Rebecca Beeson, offered Brandon a position to launch their first menswear collection, B.Son. For the following four years Brandon worked as head of design, production, and sales overseeing all aspects of the collection. By 2007 Brandon was named Sportswear International's Best New Designer of the Year.
Eager to explore and expand on his own vision, Brandon parted ways with B.Son in 2009 and launched his first collection, B:SCOTT with his Father Tom.
The intention of B:SCOTT was to create menswear that encapsulated the fusion of Japanese and German aesthetics. In March of 2010, Brandon produced his first runway show for Concept LA Fashion Week. Melissa Magsaysay, in The Los Angeles Times, wrote: "The most impressive point of the event was the B:SCOTT runway show." Today, Brandon oversees creative, sales and production for all four brands.
