Brooke Garwood Malik – Fashion & Why She Loves it!
Every woman in the world loves fashion and here Brooke Garwood Malik will share with us why she loves it as well. Truth is that If you ask any woman which is one of the things they love to do most you will find the majority of them will say ‘Shopping’ and that ties right back up to fashion. Brooke Garwood is no different. It is not just because of the shopping part of it as much as being in the fashion industry aspect of it. When any of us read about, talk about, think about and look at anything that’s about fashion some of us think of shopping for a new outfit or something along those lines. However, when you are in the fashion industry that changes altogether. This has to do with the fact that people in the fashion industry are usually the ones who will decide what you and I end up wearing sometime in the future. Brooke Malik always loved that about fashion. Being able to somehow help shape the outcome of what men and women will wear is something every fashion designer or person in the fashion industry dreams and loves.
Some will be surprised to know though that Brooke is involved in the men’s fashion industry and not women. She is a force to be reckoned with in a mostly all male dominated enterprise.
One thing about fashion and style and that is that we are constantly being told to ‘wear this’ or ‘do not wear that’. We are also hounded about colours with concepts based on “black is slimming” or “whites are only proper during” as well as “black is not your colour”. This can be frustrating and a little confusing to most of us sometimes. Brooke likes to keep things simple when it comes to her love and dedication to fashion. She decided at an early age that she was going to be in the fashion industry.
Once she went to school and set her mind on her career, she thrived in it. Of course she loves to mention the fact that her husband, Michael J. Malik Sr. (Seen with her in the photograph above) has always been very supportive of her and her dreams. In fact, Michael Malik helped Brooke by always complimenting and supporting her on so many of her projects. For those that are not familiar with Michael Malik and his accomplishments they should know that he is the man praised for bringing forth legalized gambling in many casinos within the US. Brooke notes that it was Michael’s success in this area that helped to inspire her to always move forward.
When we ask Brooke Malik to tell us one reason she loves fashion so much she quickly says that “It’s about expressing yourself and letting that expression be worn by someone else” We often wonder why Mrs. Malik never became a fashion designer herself. Atlas she points out that she loves the fashion industry but also the commercial and retail end of it. After all, she points out, “There’s no greater reward than being successful doing something you love… and that people love you for it”
