After forty years of fashion design and retailing, starting with The Unicorn and followed by Marilyn Brooks Boutiques throughout Canada and the United States, I now spend my time painting, public speaking, and am launching a new book of my life story, 'Behind the Seams' (http://www.behindtheseams.fashion) on Oct 15, 2017 at the ROM.

I am currently a year-round resident of Lake Rosseau in Ontario where I am able to focus on my love of painting and channel my creativity to this lifelong passion I have for art. My extensive travels have taken me to such places as Paris, Greece, Argentina, Morocco, Croatia and Slovenia and my art work reflects the vibrant impressions left on me. My works grace numerous private collections.

ABOUT MARILYN BROOKS

Few designers have impacted the Canadian fashion industry and endeared themselves to such a loyal following from coast to coast as has Marilyn Brooks. Celebrating over 40 years as one of Canada's most renowned designers and media personalities, Brooks pioneered the concept of managing a vertical fashion business as a designer, manufacturer, wholesaler, and retailer.
Raised and educated in Michigan, Marilyn came to Toronto in the early sixties and followed her entrepreneurial instincts by establishing Canada's first and highly successful series of boutiques, The Unicorn.

Marilyn has also found the time to make significant contributions to Canada's fashion industry and to her community. Promoting great Canadian design talent has always been one of her passions. This is reflected in the long list of awards, acknowledgements, and honours she has received over more than four fashionable decades.
