    Ep. 39 | Becoming "The Stitch Doctor" with Tony Dennis

    45:44

    Tony Dennis, co-founder of Tote&Carry, is affectionately known as “The Stitch Doctor” or “Stitch” for his decades-long career “stitching” custom, quality fashion pieces for high profile clients. The popular designer, who stitched his first items using a worn-out sewing machine in his basement in 1992, has amassed nearly 30 years of experience. With a strong background and humble beginnings under his belt, the clothing guru transformed his basement into the workspace where he hand-crafted custom pieces for clients and later launched No Names Designs. Further cementing his work in the industry, Dennis re-invented himself and became a highly sought-after designer and stylist. He has since worked with GQ Magazine, Netflix, Tyler Perry Studios, BYU TV and Swirl Network TV. Stitch has also worked with stars and professional athletes including Shaquille O'Neal, Michael B. Jordan, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Big Ben Roethlisberger, Vivica A. Fox, Young Jeezy, Future, Rick Ross, Waka Flocka, Keyshia Cole, Jada Pinkett Smith, Janet Jackson and producer Drumma Boy.
