Honoring Anto – The Beverly Hills City Council honored Anto Beverly Hills, which is celebrating 40 years in the City, with its Legacy Business Award

On Tuesday, the Beverly Hills City Council honored Anto Beverly Hills, which is celebrating 40 years in the City, with its Legacy Business Award. Anto Sepetjian was a master tailor from Beirut who began shirtmaking in 1955. He came to the United States in 1976, and opened his own shop in Fresno, before a friend convinced him to move to Beverly Hills. Two years later, he opened his first small shop on Brighton Way and quickly developed a reputation for custom-making exquisite dress shirts. Anto ended up moving to different locations in the City multiple times to accommodate his growing business. In the 1980s, his sons Jack and Ken took up the craft and not long after, joined the business. Today, Anto Beverly Hills, located at 258 N. Beverly Dr., continues Anto’s long-standing tradition or providing top-flight tailoring and ready-to-wear clothing.
