Don Scott isn’t just a fashion designer! He’s an artist whose work speaks for the people and urban communities everywhere.

Growing up in West Philadelphia, Scott always knew he wanted more for himself and those around him.

Being an inner-city kid, Scott dreamed of creating a brand for people like himself who loved high-end designers but could not afford them.

He first hit the Philly fashion scene in 2007 with the launch of his streetwear brand, the Don Nation Brand also known as DNTN, where he’d sell merch from out of the back of his trunk at parkside basketball games and barbershops.

Almost 20-something years later, and the 38- year-old married father of two has since created Scott by Don Scott and partnered with Footlocker to distribute both streetwear brands.

Scott says that the Scott by Don Scott brand is an extension of how far he’s come as a fashion designer and man since dropping DNTN.

The Cobbs Creek native looks to grow his brand and legacy while continuing to pay homage to how far he’s come.
