Threaded through my life is the story of PARRISH, my family name and how this name has evolved in meaning so much more; it's an essence of love, imperfect but strong, tumultuous and abiding. An acknowledgment that life isn't always easy, yet what we wrap around us should always be sexy and luxurious.
Throughout my career, I’ve launched successful brands including SPLENDID, JAMES PERSE, BIG STAR and EARL JEAN and served as the Global Sales and Merchandising Director of YAYA Aflalo.
I was the Owner and Creative Director of BROCHU WALKER, a luxury contemporary brand distributed in over 200 of the top high-end retailers worldwide. BROCHU WALKER also created an active division of the brand called 24/7, which was sold exclusively to Saks Fifth Avenue, then rolled out to over 200 specialty stores throughout the country.
My first PARRISH collection is the DNA of my life as a PARRISH growing up with love, warmth and passion, textured with memories both wild and sweet. The graceful cumulation of my musings, missteps and mysteries. PARRISH is real...like me.
It is my personal wish to wrap up others in sweaters that make them feel warmth, fierce with sensuality and opulence, the willingness to let go and live...and in all of that, the courage to cry, dream, laugh and love.
This is PARRISH. This is ME.
I am Lauren PARRISH Walker and this is the World where I Live, in my Life, in my Dreams, in my Everything.
