DESIGNER & CEO
Montee Tayion Holland is the President and CEO of the Tayion Collection. He is a Detroit, Michigan, native and Marine Corps veteran who will often describe his clientele as Renaissance men. That descriptor is also an accurate portrayal of Holland himself. He is a self-made businessman who left a job at Pfizer to step out on faith to begin designing. In 2003, Holland had his first successful showing at the Las Vegas Magic Garment Industry Convention. Holland has since created an international brand that successfully distributed in excess of $40M in merchandise. The brand also has a notable repertoire of patrons including business professionals, public dignitaries and celebrities.
In May of 2019, Holland was selected to participate in The Workshop at Macy’s. It is a best-in-class vendor development program created by the iconic brand and retail leader Macy’s. It was during this participation in this workshop that he garnered the attention of MBE Capital Partners, LLC and was approved for a $10M line of credit based on the successful history of the Tayion Collection, information received from Macy’s and references from procurement officers at multiple Fortune 500 companies. The funds will be used for large-scale projects in the United States and abroad. Holland, who has undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, volunteers his free time at high schools. He has also secured millions of dollars in scholarship funds for aspiring college-bound young black men.
Holland has been a connoisseur of fashion since a very young age. He always had a knack for putting things together. Holland turned that passion into an international line of men’s suits that premiered its new Fall 2020 collection in February of 2019 at the Las Vegas Magic Show Convention. That premiere also introduced the Tayion Collection’s first outerwear line for men and women.
