As far as professions go, fashion stylist and mathematician might well be polar opposites, but in the world of Elyse Walker, these two interests created a unique and powerful formula that ultimately led to her expansive, thriving boutique on Antioch Street in the heart of Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles. Over the years, Walker has built a reputation as a sharp stylist and buyer with an eye for color and proportion.
She is known for dressing her clients from head-to-toe for occasions ranging from the soccer field to the boardroom to the red carpet. It was in 1995 that Walker moved to Pacific Palisades from her native New York, where, at the age of 18, she had begun running a family-owned business with locations on Madison Avenue and in Scarsdale, New York.
In Pacific Palisades, Walker immediately recognized the need for a convenient, high-end store that catered to a community of fashion- savvy women. Armed with extensive experience, Walker launched her namesake store in 1999, carrying designer clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories. Since its opening in 1999, Elyse Walker has expanded four times, quadrupling the boutique’s original size.
