We had the good fortune of connecting with Shanita Walker and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shanita, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking is necessary in gaining rewards. The term no risk no regards rang true when navigating through life. Taking risk has allowed me to elevate in ways I’ve never imagined. Risk is just going against fear to see what’s in the other side. And even when the risk doesn’t seem rewarding they are because you learn valuable lessons on what to do and what not to do moving forward.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a designer which is basically a creative/artist with fabric. I design intricate garments that make statements for women of all colors, shapes and sizes. S. Denton Collection’ is geared towards innovation. It’s a lifestyle full of sparks and shine. I want every woman who wear my brand to leave a glitter trail wherever she goes .
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would love to take my friend to the high art Museum, SCAD to explore the creatives at the fashion school. We would go to the aquarium and then the Ferris wheel afterwards. We could check out some live entertainment at the city winery. They always have great performers. We would eat at milk and honey and have drinks at a fine lounge. Maybe go to the vineyard. And I’d love to show her the historic parts of Atlanta especially with what’s happening in the world i think it would be a educational way to explore our leaders such as Dr. King and where he lived and spoke his ministry at his church.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes! Buelah McKinnon for instilling the gift of sewing in me || Kim Ford @kimford For always helping to open new doors for me Clair Sulmers of fashion bomb daily for taking a chance with my brand
