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.
