Timothy Westbrook has a brain full of ideas that resemble the result of a dance party attended by Alexander McQueen, Tim Burton, Pixar storytellers, and L.L.Bean product testers. In his visual art, special events, and "T. L. Brooke" ready-to-wear line, he effortlessly blends environmental sustainability, fairytales, and social advocacy into a playful package.
He was born in the foothills of the Northern Adirondack Mountains in Wanakena, NY. After attending Syracuse University for fashion design and fiber arts, his professional studio practice lead him to Milwaukee, WI. Timothy Westbrook Studio is now back on the east coast, currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
Westbrook’s recognition has been as quirky as his personality; National Fossil Day First Place Artist, Syracuse University Sustainability Fellows, GreenBiz NYC Conference “One Great Idea” speaker, and the “Sustainicorn” of Project Runway Season 12. He was also the first out-of-state, non-painting, and youngest ever Artist-in-Residence at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, WI.
In third grade Timothy coordinated a local Halloween party and costume contest at the town Presbyterian Church with prizes collected from local businesses. He coordinated advertising with the local paper and public school. Costumes and fashion have run parallel with many of his events.
After graduating college he found his way into the bridal industry by way of alterations at David's Bridal. This led to three years of bridal gown consulting. Blending his in depth knowledge of the wedding industry with his seven years of professional event planning experience, wedding day and month of coordination was a natural evolution. With a love for traditions and family, Westbrook brings a personal touch, unique to his genuine and caring disposition.
A note from Timothy:
"I've been in the box [on television] but I'm still just a person, easy to get in touch with and easy to talk to. I can't wait to hear from you to have a chance for our journeys to overlap!"
