A hybrid of astute fashion stylist and fastidious entrepreneur, Elyse Walker is serious about the business of fashion without ever taking fashion itself too seriously. Propelled by the belief that “every day is a runway,” Elyse has always found inspiration at every turn. Her passion for styling women is evidenced by the Pacific Palisades store quadrupling in size since 1999. Elyse’s name has grown to become synonymous with fashions that take on many forms. Business owner, fashion director, and shoe, clothing, and accessory designer are just some of these stylish manifestations. Juggling the many facets of the elysewalker family come naturally to Elyse, and usually in six inch Alaïas.
ABOUT OUR STORES
Before curating high and low, near and far, and designer with contemporary became the norm in the business, elysewalker was doing just that. Mixing McQueen and Chloe with Iro and Frame Denim, the store blends it all seamlessly under one roof. Your closet keeps your Valentino blouses in arm’s reach of your Enza Costa tees, why couldn’t a store? What started as just 900 sq feet tucked on an unassuming block in the Pacific Palisades has since attracted quite the following. So much so, now, elysewalker nearly is the block. Now with a second store located in Newport Beach, 150+ designers and a team of stylists to rival that of any department store, elysewalker is a Southern California tour de force.
