I was so fortunate to discover the new LA based designer Walter Mendez whilst on a recent visit to the US. I recently wore his Amore dress to a dinner at Annabels.
I was not prepared for the amount of interest and compliments I would get!
This dress is so easy to wear, the skirt is taffeta creating an elegant fit on the waist. The bodice is crystalised in caramel and gold tones. That fit perfect around the bodice and hug in all the right places.
I first saw the dress on his Instagram and was intrigued. I was happy when after ordering I saw Leyla Milani wear the dress because it looked equally fabulous on Leyla (as it always does, FYI she has a variety of colours).
Walter is an LA based designer who creates beautiful dressss for Jeniifer Lopez, Ciara and more.
Walter also makes gowns that are Inspired by the movie “Black Swan,” Walter Mendez’s gowns evolve from innocent white to Goth drama with black dresses trimmed in green feathers that fan out from the shoulders and neck.
Another plus to ordering from Walter is that although he is stateside if you let them know when ordering that you are abroad- they will take away your duties and taxes.
In Fall 2009, Walter created the Walter Collection. The Walter Collection incorporates the principles of haute couture: fashion, quality and fit. Each season’s silhouettes are motivated by the latest European fabrics. Hand beaded tops sewn by artisans, hand worked jackets in the latest novelty fabrics, feminine, beautiful skirts and dresses, perfectly tailored pants and luxurious cashmere sweaters: all with embellishments finely crafted to compliment the fabrics and designs are always a part of the Walter Collection. The Walter Collection only employs and works with the best; from hand-beaded tops sewn by artisans to hand crafted jackets in the latest novelty fabrics, from stunning skirts and dresses exuding the essence of femininity to flawlessly tailored pants and luxurious cashmere sweaters. A natural trait of the Walter Collection is to instill in their garments finely crafted embellishments to compliment the fabrics and designs.
