I like to think of my work as timeless but with that little special something. My designs are created for the female body, the creations are feminine and glamorous but still have attitude.

About Lars Wallin

Lars Wallin’s journey to becoming Sweden’s most iconic couturier started early on after reading about “Beckmans School of Design” in a fashion magazine as a teenager. He would later graduate and continue pursuing his dreams of becoming a fashion designer, eventually starting his own business.

Since its inception, Wallin’s luxury brand has grown to include a jewelry line, ready-to- wear line and a premium dress line inspired by haute couture. These lines offer fun, feminine styles with billowing sleeves and textured fabrics that tender daring edginess. However, his heart and talent really shine when it comes to couture dresses.

Wallin’s rare pieces have an air of timeless sophistication reminiscent of the couture gowns that once graced the red carpets during Hollywood’s “Golden Era.” Wallin’s impeccable attention to detail and stunning craftsmanship has led to the creation of striking, hand-stitched dresses, often featuring remarkable embroidery and intricate beading or crystal details.
