We’re back in town & POPing-Up

Hello everyone! We’re back in town and anxious to see many of you!

What a challenging and emotional year this has been. The opening of our webstore, and closing of our beautiful Jasper Ave location, was a difficult process. The constant emotion shared with so many of you was heartwarming and inspiring yet exhausting at the same time. I cannot thank some of you enough and hold you dear in my heart. And thanks to all of you for your kindness, sincerity and support.

The packing and moving (both store and home), is not a memory I relish. It was gruelling. We were in such a rush to move out and get to Victoria to do a Pop-Up Store before tourist season wound down. In the end, we pretty much missed the tourist crowds and rented an off-the-tourist-trek location but it was still worth our while in that it gave us a bit of a feel for the local clientele.

Two months in Victoria was perfect as it gave us time to recuperate and renew our energy. The healthy lifestyle and being surrounded by such history and beauty was very rejuvenating. We almost jumped into another lease in Victoria but in the end chose to hold off for a bit – not feeling sure, or ready, to go there quite yet. Happily, we’ve found a lovely gallery space on Fisgard Street in Chinatown where we’ll be POPing-Up during the tourist season next July, August and September. We’re very excited as this will give us a good opportunity to feel out Victoria and determine if it’s a fit.

Of course Edmonton is where my roots are and there is a loyalty I hold dear. We expect to be setting up here at least twice a year in hopes of keeping connected with you and keep my fashion on the streets of Edmonton. I hope that with our POP-Ups, I can still get a glimpse of you (and some hugs now and then are good too).

Upcoming December POP-Ups

We’re very excited to announce we’ll be setting up next to “Canteen Restaurant”; on 124st (off 105th Ave). How convenient having them as our neighbours. Yay!!! Please drop by to see us and pass the word on as we are here only for the month of December.

Now that we’re no longer so tied down with our Edmonton store, we hope to re-establish and build on our Calgary relationships. We have a two day POP-Up planned. Good client and friend – Maureen Stapleton, has graciously offered the use of her popular salon – Sheer Attitude, on 17th Ave in Calgary. We’ll be setting up for Sunday Dec. 8th & Monday Dec 9th.

New Beginnings

With mixed emotions we write to inform you that Maggie Walt Design, Edmonton’s home of high fashion, will be closing its doors this summer.

The 10 years we’ve spent as a fixture on Jasper Avenue with the Fashion Underground space, and all the events we’ve hosted – it’s been a special time. The fashion shows, concerts by local musicians, fundraisers, dance performances and Hidden Gems events showcasing local indie businesses have all made for a wonderful decade.

However, it is now time for change and we believe that operating without a fixed retail location while harnessing the powers of the Internet, will give us greater flexibility in bringing our unique designs to the world.

Issues such as new ownership of the Jasper Ave building and the constant struggle to encourage more Edmontonians to patronize local indie businesses influenced our decision as well. The yearning for change is driven also by a desire to be mobile and to bring our unique line of designs to different cities, at different times, yet still be available to everyone. The new maggiewalt.com web store will allow you to find us at anytime, from anywhere.

We do not know where this journey will take us but we’ll keep you posted. We may just “Popup” here and there. You’ll be the first to know!

Clearance Sale starts now!
Being mobile means being light on your feet, and we are overloaded with stock. So, from now ‘til the end of July we’ll be liquidating a lot of it. We encourage you to come in and get those pieces you held off on in the past but perhaps cannot take your mind off – maybe the one-of-a-kind hand embroidered coat everyone said looked incredible on you or the party dress you weren’t sure you could get away with.

Now is your chance to get that Maggie Walt treasure at a steal-of-a-deal. Everything on the sales floor has been reduced 30% – 90% off. Shop now to get the best selection!

July 20 Farewell Celebration & Fashion Show
Maggie’s fashion shows are our little bits of prairie glamour, always fun & extremely helpful to see how the designs move on real live bodies.

This final show is going to be a very special evening! In addition to a fashion show featuring Maggie’s latest designs to take you through the rest of summer, you’ll be treated to Booming Tree: a Japanese Taiko drumming duo who have taken a detour on their North American tour to perform for us as well as the Harley Symington Trio playing cool jazz. Singer/Songwriter Carrie Day will enchant us with a few of her folk/roots originals. Dancer Tracy Friesen, owner of Integration Pilates Studio, is dancing her latest choreography. And rounding out the night is CJSR DJ – Buster Friendly.

Tickets are $20 – get yours now either online here or at Maggie Walt Design. Ticket proceeds donated to the Just-One Organization of Kathmandu Nepal

Refreshments will be provided and plenty of fun is guaranteed.

See you there!

Thank you, our loyal customers and friends, for your patronage over the past 10 years – and possibly more for those who remember when Maggie Walt was only available at private parties and trunk shows 🙂

This is a big decision for us, and again, we appreciate the support you’ve shown us over the years. We’ll stay in touch…

Sincerely,
Maggie Walt Design

Welcome

Welcome to our new web site. After a couple of years of promises to get our store online– we’re finally there. We still have a lot of work to do in getting the rest of our products up and posting photos, videos, blog entries etc… It’ll be a work in progress for a while.

As you know from our store, we don’t use S, M, L or standard numeric sizes. We have coloured ribbons with sizes A – F printed on them. We find this encourages customers to buy the “right” size. On the webstore we follow that philosophy. In fact, we have actual measurements unique to each garment posted. On each garment details page you will find a few key measurements.

If you’d like to keep in touch with what’s going on at maggiewalt.com, please subscribe to our email list (see the Join Our Community section below)

Please let us know what you think.
