Wise 50 Over 50 Award™
Delcia Filippone – Delformals Wear
Prior to opening up Delformals Wear, I was a Wedding Decorator/Silk Florist Designer for 10 years. Although I enjoyed what I did, I had always been interested in owning my own shop doing something I loved. I decided I wanted to do something that I felt the community really needed.
At the age of 50 years old I decided to open a Wedding/Formal wear Consignment Shop. A place where New and gently used formal gowns could have a second chance to be used. A place where someone could take that beautiful gown that was hanging in their closet to and someone else could enjoy it. A place where someone could purchase a Wedding gown or formal gown at affordable prices and not have to break the bank for their special day.
I have been in business with Delformals Wear for 5 years now and each year just gets better. Having this shop has allowed me to give back to my community.
I’m able to support causes with donations for fundraisers. I’ve also held many fashion shows as fundraisers and donated monies received to local youth groups and community groups such as Girl Guides and Lions Clubs and young women in Maritime Pageants, enabling them to reach their full potential.
It also been a a pleasure to give local high school students an opportunity to work at the shop as a Co-op student towards earning extra credits at school.
Delformals Wear….dress like your already famous!
