I grew up in Hingham, MA which is a small seaside town just south of Boston. It is also the location of the original “Alice Walk” (formerly a public walkway along Hingham harbor in 1870s that was part of a Victorian amusement park called Melville Gardens). I loved growing up in the South Shore and hoped I would eventually end up there with my own family - and now I am! My husband and I decided to move from the South End in Boston and settle in Cohasset - a tiny, quaint town by the beach right next door to Hingham.
I attended Bowdoin College, a small liberal arts school in Brunswick, Maine. I majored in Economics and minored in Art History - quite the combination!
Founder; running the day to day operations of the business and spearheading design & product development.
Working in a creative environment and using both the left and right side of my brain equally throughout the day. I also draw energy from being surrounded by smart, kind people — and luckily I get that from my team and our customers.
It really depends on the occasion, but I guess I would have to say the Shift Dress and our Long Vest. I love the shift because of it’s super classic, simple shape which let’s the fabric “do the talking” — and it’s perfect for those in between formality occasions like a bridal shower or luncheon where you need to dress up and look put together but you don’t want to show show up wearing a cocktail dress. I also love our long vest because it immediately elevates an outfit in a no-fuss type of way - it also helped get me through pregnancy without needing to buy fancy maternity clothes!
There are so many it’s hard to choose! I think it’s a tie between New Zealand and Japan. Although I am also dying to go back to India — I’ve been twice, but feel like I just scratched the surface. It’s such a beautiful, interesting and colorful country with incredibly hospitable people.
I was born in a small town in the center of Brazil. I was raised under the influence of my talented mother and grandmother. They had a strong passion for fashion so I attribute my love for fashion in part to them. I am currently settled in Boston. I have grown to love this city where I've had the ability to study fashion and use my knowledge and skillset at Alice Walk.
I got my degree in Fashion Design at The School of Fashion Design in Boston right on Newbury Street.
I am one of the seamstresses and I also help in the development of patterns that you see at Alice Walk!
My favorite part would be making the designs come to life through patterning. I love fitting a moulage, which is the process of draping and manipulating the fabric on the dress form.
My first would be the Crewneck Circle Skirt Dress. It is such a classy silhouette that is appropriate for any occasion and has a sophisticated, polished look. The Scoopneck Circle Skirt Dress is another favorite of mine. The simplicity of the design brings remarkable femininity to any woman.
As a fashion designer and lover of the arts, it would be a dream to go to Athens, Greece. I find some of my design inspiration from ancient greek fabrics and mysticism. I find their vase paintings and sculptures to be really extraordinary.
I grew up in East Providence, RI. I began studying in Boston which is what prompted my move from Rhode Island. I was interested in finding new opportunities in the fashion industry and that’s when I started working with Alice Walk. I have been an employee since the very beginning when Emily officially launched in the summer of 2016! I currently live in Western Massachusetts.
Similar to Candy, I also attended the School of Fashion Design in Boston.
I have two roles at Alice Walk - the first being cutting for the made-to-order process of the business. I am responsible for precisely cutting each garment based off of patterns that are graded for each silhouette. When I am not cutting, I am sewing!
I have two favorite parts about working at Alice Walk. First and foremost are the wonderful people I work alongside of and the teamwork that goes into every aspect of Alice Walk. Secondly, I'm quite fond of the work that I am doing, which in turn makes going to work everyday enjoyable.
My first favorite style is the Long Tailored Jacket because of the fit and timelessness of the silhouette. It's also a major plus that it can be worn casually or dressed up. My second favorite style is the A-Line Dress. It’s a mix of classic and modern with a great shape.
I would love to take a trip to Iceland. The photos I've seen are all stunning so I can't image what it's like to actually be there. The scenery and landscapes are so vast and undeveloped, which is hard to find these days!
