our story

Hello!

I'm Nicola Walker and I come from Edinburgh, Scotland and I  now live in the beautiful countryside of Gloucestershire, I live with my wonderful husband Mark who is originally from Kendal, Cumbria and together we have 3 fabulous kiddos - Ty, Abby & Jude....not forgetting our fat cat Bales and our German shepherd pup - Gabe.

 

Mark is the second part of Walker & Walker. He is the man of marvellous job descriptions, He is our web designer, our book keeper, our admin man as well as helping me with packing up orders and running them to the post office! He can also make you a bespoke suit if you are in the market?

So how did I/we get here?

 

I fell in love with fashion way back when I was just 17 years old. I worked in manufacturing for Levi Strauss, sewing up trouser hems and adding belt loops.....boring but I loved it, it was at the time when everyone owned at least 6 pairs of Levi's and I got mine half price #jobperks

I made Lingerie for Marks and Spencers, suits for DAKS and dabbled with my own designs throughout the years. I also trained as a hairdresser for a few years working at Toni & Guy whilst I brought up our kids. Mark worked for Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Hardy Amies and Austin Reed so we both have a huge passion for historic fashion. We are always talking cloth....much to our kids exasperation.

We love what we do and we hope you do too!

 

Thank you so much for stopping by
