Lauren Parrish Walker
Threaded through Lauren's life is the story of her family with origins in a small North East town... mostly during the cold winter months, in their car, with the windows open just a crack to feel the cold air on her face, Miles Davis coming through the radio and Lauren's dad behind the wheel. These are her most comforting memories.
Her design ethos embodies how she perceive that comfort; the texture of her life’s memories, both wild and sweet. The sensuality of her musings, missteps and her willingness to rise after each fall.
Lauren's love of clothing and passion comes from her mother, Dale. She was always her touchstone, her comfort. Her love was fierce. As was her impeccable style and her passion. She had a multitude of mysteries and Lauren still learns from her every day...how to always be true to herself.
Lauren's ParrishLA collections are inspired from more than where she comes from and the distinct and strong personalities that shaped her. It is her evolution and creative expression of love, imperfect but strong; tumultuous but abiding.
To surround others in sweaters that create a connection to their own warmth, is an acknowledgement that life isn’t always easy, but what we wrap around us, can always be.
