Mariangela C. Walker
Mariangela and I first met on September 11, 2012, which was my second day in North Carolina as a Visiting Scholar at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The previous night I had stayed at the Carolina Inn Hotel. We met as I was walking through Carrboro on my way to the apartment I had obtained. Seeing that I was rolling a large suitcase down the sidewalk, Mariangela asked if I needed a ride. It was going to be a 1.5 mile walk, so of course I said yes!
We stopped at Weaver Street Market, chatted for a while with her husband who was there, and they drove me to my new apartment. After that she helped me get my apartment set up and get adjusted to the good life in North Carolina. She invited me to seasonal family gatherings and to meet her good friends. We attended Tar Heel basketball games together. This turned her into a big Tar Heel fan! Mariangela visited Tokyo for her first visit in 2019. We are looking forward to developing Guarantee Happiness into a business that serves people’s need for comfortable clothing that is both stylish and unique. Stay tuned!
Guarantee Happiness is a brand with a serious mission and a large dose of meaningful humor.
Nobody can Guarantee Happiness, of course, but we sure include it as we create chic-fun-comfortable clothing while also working to incorporate delightfully interesting ways to reduce waste in the apparel industry. Our first mission along that lines is to include (up cycling) in Pop-ups: We participate at FUN RUNS and MEANINGFUL FUND RAISING ROAD RACES/WALKS across the USA and beyond, and add skirts (made from clean industry left-overs and over-runs) to tee shirts (Tees + Skirts = Tee Skirt Dresses) which are made for the events to AMPLIFY the fun, comfort, and "cool" factor for event tees! We also make "high end" Tee Skirt Dresses which satisfy the desire for dressier play clothes.
