LONDON, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With an impressive C.V of achievements Mark Ecko now turns his talents to creating classic tailoring, Burton is proud to announce that his Cut and Sew collection will be available exclusively within its stores and online.
Not many people can boast that they were the youngest person to be inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America, or that they were the first person to receive a MTV VMA for "Best Video Game Soundtrack".
Mark can also site such diverse friends such as Lindsay Lohan, Hugh Hefner and George Lucas and was also a key speaker at the United Nations World Entrepreneurship Day in 2010.
As a publishing, internet, fashion and videogame entrepreneur he caused a worldwide news frenzy when he tagged Air Force One with graffiti reading "Still free" emblazoned on it. He actually hired a Boeing 747 and painted it to look like the real deal, receiving over 114 million views on You tube, 7,000 news stories around the world and 3 denials from the Pentagon.
Now the British high street gets the Mark Ecko treatment with the new Cut & Sew collection.
This range blends classic tailoring with sharp lines and is designed for those who want to start dressing a little more seriously but still maintain their youthful spirit.
The four single breasted, two button suits arrive in a black tailored, a grey sharkskin, a black narrow pinstripe, and a grey herringbone.
Mark Ecko is driven by a simple belief: no one needs to be restricted into a single aesthetic. For spring/summer 2011 the new Mark Ecko collection at Burton achieves just that.
Burton was originally founded in 1903 under the name of The Cross-Tailoring Company. It quickly became popular and expanded into hundreds of outlets and factories across the United Kingdom. Today, it is a staple on most high streets and a popular retailer for men's fashion, including gifts for men, men's suits, men's shirts, casual clothing, men's jeans and men's shoes.
