About The Brand
Valk is an exclusive brand that has made it’s mark in Australia by supporting the Australian economy and European economy. This is by only using the best European fabrics and making the garments in Sydney Australia.
Valk gives a part of the profits of each dress to ChildFund Australia. Helping children all over the world eat, live better and stay healthy. So far we have purchased bicycles, goats, chickens, sanitary bags, blankets for winter and more.
You will wear one of our dresses knowing that it is helping children, made with the best fabrics and guaranteed to fit, otherwise 100% return (if not worn/ or damaged)
How often do you have to buy underwear and a bra to suit the style of elegant dress you buy? After realising that we can save you money on these items, we decided to build in bra cups and underwear in all of our dresses. For your comfortability, support and to save you time and money.
About the Designer
Jacqueline Valk or Jacki as she is better known has been an professional Latin & Salsa dancer for over 10 years. After making her own costumes with built in underwear and bras she realised there maybe an opportunity here.
Her mum was a designer and taught her everything she knew about patterns, fabrics and sewing. With loving parents they encouraged her to build her brand on the back of her dancing career.
She only likes to use stretch fabrics that flow around the body and feel like a second skin. Comfortable and elegant is her style. If the dress looks conservative, wait for it… and look for the edge. To each of her designs she creates a twist of difference so you can tell it’s a Valk dress.
She is always open to suggestions as you’re the ones in need. She makes time and is willing to help almost everyone. She has a great heart and all we want to is see her succeed with her unique brand.
This is a story for you to follow your dream and make it true even if you’re unsure of the outcome…
From being in an office by day and having a dance hobby in the evenings Jacki Valk had no idea that fashion was her destiny.
Being an assistant to many CEO’s in Sales, Marketing, Finance and property she was purely an office based worker and wanted more.
From a dramatic life experience in Los Angeles and Las Vegas she moved back to Australia with a vision for her life. That vision was an empire of ladies dresses.
“My vision is why I’m here, I have always wanted to do something amazing and always felt I was different. I have always tried to stand out from the crowd and I’m wanting to empower the world to do the same, as I’m sure you have an incredible talent to share. I only want to help people unleash that. For me if I feel good in what I wear, I’m unstoppable. Therefore I want every woman wearing one of my dresses to feel that way also.”
At VALK we specialise in creating and manufacturing designs to fit each body type for movement and comfort with our incredible stretch-like fabrics from around the world.
Valk exists to make peoples lives better, whether that is to create your dreams (by wearing the outfit to get you there) or making you feel incredible for a night, there is nothing we want more.
