MARCUS ANDREWS www.mandrewsluxury.com

Photographer Rosebeth Akharamen

Marcus Andrews (M Andrews Sartorial Luxury Collection) has an Award Winning brand that strives to produce nothing but the best and has been positioned from the beginning to rival the top tier brands in men’s fashion. The core of his brand features tailored suits and hand crafted footwear that is made to order. From where did your love of the fashion industry come? My love for fashion came from my mother. Growing up, she was always very stylish and created her own looks. What inspired you to become a designer (and apparel business owner)? As a consumer and business professional, I was never able to find exactly what fit my taste and my body. I am also a little bolder than some and my market (San Antonio) caters to a more conservative demo, so I started this brand really to serve my own needs. What formal education and/or training did you receive? I am self-taught in this business; although, I have definitely educated myself along the way.
