Southwestern @ Georgetown
Darien Kubik Wilson ’93

“Striving for balance is a mother’s work,” says Darien Kubik Wilson ’93. The proud mother of two (her son Clark is pictured here), Wilson found inspiration from her own mothering experience to create a product for active moms called ZoloWear.

Influenced by Jamelle Flowers ’82, an instructor in the Theatre Department, Wilson became interested in sewing and pattern making while a student at Southwestern. The experience taught her to cut expensive fabrics, make things from scratch and experiment with different materials—preparing her for her current artistic endeavor.

After the birth of her first child, Wilson made slings for herself to carry her baby, using original patterns and fabrics. She received countless praises from mothers everywhere on her new creations. When the idea came about to make slings for others, her husband Joe Wilson ’92 insisted that they become incorporated. From concept to title, her daughter Zoe Love was the inspiration for ZoloWear, fashionable slings for on-the-move mothers to wear when carrying their children. ZoloWear gear may be purchased online or in retail stores in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.

For now, Wilson’s passion is to spread the love of “babywearing” and to make women feel good about themselves when carrying their children. Her idea has even become the core purpose of her business, to “bring mothers and babies together, beautifully.”

“My liberal arts education is the reason that I’m here. If not for Jamelle and what she taught me, I would not have this business,” says Wilson.
