Anthony Muto (1934-2015) started training with his grandfather, a tailor, at the age of twelve. After studying at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, he spent two years working in fashion in Europe. He then returned to the States, where he worked for Arkay Juniors and Devonshire.
In 1971 Muto formed his own label, Marita by Anthony Muto. There he made inexpensive evening wear with a sportswear feel.
“I’m interested in making clothes that look like ‘this season’ but don’t go out of style next season. I wasn’t raised in the throw-away tradition; I think things should last.” Anthony Muto, 1978
