(1918-1991) Ken Scott was born in Indiana, but made his name in fashion in Milan, Italy. After studying at Parsons School of Design, he moved to Europe in the post-war years. He ended up in Milan, where in the 1950s, his scarves for Falconetto became a fashion must-have.
Scott started a line of ready-to-wear clothing in 1964. He designed the fabrics, which were bold and colorful. They were also often made of the synthetic fabric, Banlon. In 1966 some of these dresses were chosen for the Audrey Hepburn movie, Two for the Road.
The label was relaunched in 2005.
