Marques Soares as a brand dates back to 1960 when António José Marques Pinho and Manuel José Soares Antunes, both already working in the fashion industry, decided to join their efforts and open their own fabrics store in the renowned Rua das Carmelitas in downtown Porto.
The two businessmen imported fabrics from many countries and sold latest top quality latest trends fabrics. This laid the grounds for instant success in Porto which was then the first step for expansion of the brand’s business area. The brand first specialized in men’s and women’s clothing and then branched out into footwear and fragrances. Sometime later, the brand branched out into fashion for teens and children and later on sportswear. In addition to its fashion core activity, the brand Marques Soares also invested in optometry and eyewear, electrical appliances, decor and furniture, childcare, children’s leisure and recreational activities, watches and food.
