MARK HOLMES was born in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada. Mark was constantly surrounded by music as a child, given that his father was a musician; it was only natural that he would want to follow in his footsteps. Mark attended college for music and then went on to tour the world several times over as a singer/front man in various rock ’n’ roll bands. In early 2000 he ended up in New York where a chance meeting with renowned UK menswear stylist, Mark Anthony lead to an apprenticeship. Over the next 5 years he would develop a discerning eye and passion for menswear styling.
Mark’s passion for both music and style has since come full circle. Mark has earned himself a prestigious place in the industry styling the likes of, Jim Carrey, Trent Reznor, Jamie Foxx, Nick Jonas, Bruno Mars, Kevin Spacey, Tracy Morgan, Depeche Mode, Willem Dafoe, Diplo, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley, Ray Liotta, Paul Giamatti and Jason Sudeikis.
Mark’s masculine approach to menswear can be seen regularly on the red carpets each award season as well as being featured prominently in the pages of Interview, L’Officiel, Rolling Stone, Vogue, Esquire and GQ.
Mark was nominated for an EMMY award himself in 2008/2009 for Outstanding Art Direction in a Television Documentary Series.
Mark divides his time equally between New York and Los Angeles.
