Scott Sternberg is the founder, former chief executive and creative director of Entireworld, a Los Angeles based apparel and accessories brand of sustainable basics which launched in April 2018.

Prior to that, Sternberg was the chief executive and creative director of Band of Outsiders, which he founded in 2004 and which quickly achieved industry wide recognition for its preppy take on vintage inspired clothing and unconventional brand promotion. His off-beat menswear collection garnered instant interest and attracted buyers from Barneys New York, Jeffrey’s and Ron Herman. In 2009 Sternberg won CFDA’s Swarovski Award for New Menswear Designer of the Year. In 2010 he was jointly awarded the CFDA Best Menswear Designer award and in 2011 Band of Outsiders was selected as the guest designer at Pitti Uomo in Florence. The brand expanded to included womenswear as well as a range of Polo Shirts under the moniker "This is not a Polo Shirt." In 2015, Sternberg announced he was leaving the brand.

In 2021, Sternberg stepped down from his role at Entireworld and began freelancing as a creative director, brand consultant and commercial director working across fashion, beauty, tech, automotive, music, film and hospitality.

A graduate of Washington University with a BA in Economics, Sternberg worked at Hollywood agency CAA from 1997 to 2002. Before starting Band of Outsiders, Sternberg worked on a consulting venture with Emily Scott, Tom Scott and Cary Woods.
