Creator and founder of the Simone Walker brand, Debbie Simone Walker has been designing for about 14 years, and constructing custom made women’s garments for over 7 years. She is a graduate of the Fashion Techniques and Design program at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada.
The Simone Walker brand was created to lend a hand to women of all shapes and sizes to develop confidence, a positive self-image, and a sense of empowerment. The brand has been showcased in numerous venues within the Greater Toronto Area and in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Prior to 2012, Simone Walker specialized in the construction and alteration of various women garments such as: dresses, (cocktail, bridal, evening) shirts, blouses, jackets, blazers, pants, skirts, and swimwear. With an increase in demand for her extraordinarily styled Swimwear and Resort-wear she has been acutely focusing her efforts to satisfying these demands.
Her face sparkles with pride as she states, “Simone Walker will now focus mainly on its ‘out of the box’ swimwear and resort wear.” The brand’s target market is women ages 18-45 years old who love exceptional quality garments, exclusive cuts, and creative combinations of fabrics and colours. These Garments will glamorously transform a woman’s wardrobe.
Simone also states, “The brand is always in search of highlighting charities that correlate with our values, and the YWCA Toronto is one organization that perfectly represents our ideals.” The Simone Walker brand will be producing an evening of fashions and will donate all proceeds from the event to this wonderful organization.
The event will be the official launch of her new line “Go Girl” – All about “U” Charity Fashion Event. The event will be on Friday, August 17, 2012, at The Heliconian Club, 35 Hazelton Avenue, Yorkville, Ontario. Admission is $15 by advance ticket purchase only. For tickets and information contact (647) 285.5891 or (416) 835.9755 or by e-mail: email@example.com
With her determination and passion for fashion, Simone plans to expand her brand to the Caribbean and the USA, with special emphasis to Miami and California. She envisions enhancing the brand’s reach by demonstrating the core values of her company; Loyalty, Integrity, Female Empowerment and Trust – the “LIFT” system.
