Walter Baker began his career in finance but his creative spirit quickly directed him into a career of high fashion. In 1991, Walter launched his first label, Walter, with a collection of tough yet tender jackets and flirty feminine dresses with innovative detailing that continues to define the Walter Baker signature style. Today, Walter Baker has developed into a global lifestyle brand with a wide range of apparel, handbags, and accessories. The Walter Baker collection can be found in the most prestigious retailers around the world. His amazing pieces are featured consistently in Vogue, Bazzar, Elle, InStyle, Marie Claire and Lucky.
Walter’s unique mix of timeless styling and modern edge makes the Walter Baker collection truly wearable from morning to evening. His fabulous and flattering styles set him apart from other contemporary designers and keep his customers coming back season after season. Walter has dressed a loyal celebrity following including Eva Mendez, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Leighton Meester.
Walter never leaves home without his digital camera and sketchbook. From the streets of New York, London, Milan or Tokyo, or to wherever his travels may take him, Walter believes confidence and style are the common threads connecting women all around the world – and they forever inspire him. Walter is married to Agnes Baker and has two lovely daughters. He resides in New York City, which is also home to his studio.
