Chris Benz is an up-and-coming designer who got on my radar during a recent trip to New York. The Seattle native launched his collection at New York Fashion Week in February of 2007 and is quickly gaining a following among in-the-know fashionistas. Look for his collection at elysewalker.com and Elyse Walker Pacific Palisades in November 2010.
Wendy wore a head-turning, ombre Chris Benz dress to this year’s Pink Party. She was definitely one of the best dressed! Here she is, below, with more of the fabulous Elyse Walker girls. (Side note: If you like Sable‘s pink Herve Leger bandage dress, score it here.)
Not only did Chris Benz graciously loan out one of his striking pieces for the Pink Party, but he and Gene Migliaro, head of sales, came out and partied with us too.
Obviously we’re slightly obsessed with Chris Benz, but we aren’t the only ones. The press loves him too. Check out one of his most recent placements below–a pair of floral shorts that you’ll be able to grab from elysewalker.com in November.
