In the Beginning
It was inevitable.
Thomas Wallis cut his teeth at seventeen while working at The Different Drummer, a popular men's shop in Philadelphia. Guiding a high-end clientele in how to employ the latest fashion to enhance their personal style by day and closing its doors to outfit the likes of Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger by night, Tom dressed the best in Rock 'n' Roll's history.
Life has a way of bringing your story together. From 17 to today, Thomas Wallis has been steeped in fashion.
Wallis learned and led for 12 years with Gruppo Finanziario Tessile (GFT), the world's largest and most influential manufacturer of designer clothing whose success was rooted in its "unparalleled history, cutting edge technologies, well-organized labor practices and thorough understanding of fashion as an expression of contemporary culture." There is, simply, no better training.
Wallis led the US launch of Marzotto, working closely with designers like Gianfranco Ferré, and introducing new high-end Italian fashion to the US market.
Wallis transformed Moda America into a $28 million company by adding sportswear and women's clothing to this established menswear company, utilizing resources in Mexico.
Since 2006, Thomas Wallis has been applying his decades of experience and his in depth knowledge of every facet of the fashion business to transforming new and historic brands.
