We had the good fortune of connecting with Anthony Moultry and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anthony, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I am a graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. I would often visit the campus bookstore in search of apparel and not find what I want. I saw the need to provide unique and quality apparel for individuals such as myself with a particular aesthetic.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am an all-around creative; photographer, home chef, and clothing designer.
I have been a photographer since my middle school yearbook staff days. I have an I.G. page dedicated to my home chef ambitions and photography @Mr_MoultrysKitchen.
My most significant artistic endeavor at the moment is my collegiate apparel line, Chicer Collegiate, @ChicerCollegiate.
I was granted a contract in 2013 with Morehouse College to produce officially licensed apparel. That was the humble beginnings of Chicer Collegiate. We now hold licenses with more than a dozen institutions in the Southeastern U.S. and Washington D.C.
Some of the lessons I have learned have been good, and some have been not so good. However, each experience continues to shape my future as an entrepreneur.
I want the world to know that this is just the beginning and that my brand will have a legacy!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
ATLANTA – I am a foodie; therefore, food experiences would be high on the list. Iman Park, West Midtown, and Buckhead for sure. Nightlife would be necessary; we would visit MJQ concourse, the most eclectic place in ATL.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My parents! Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I would not be as successful as I am without their guidance, love and support.
All photography is by me, Anthony Moultry.
