Walker/Viden Luxury Consignment, co-owned by Jennie Walker and Addy Viden, has created a special runway show that will feature renowned brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloe and Celine. Jennie Walker, Creative Director, developed her New York sense of style while living in Manhattan for 16 years. She brings that vibe to her clothing choices for the store, with the classic love of the color black. Her style, combined with the Alliance Française de Pasadena trendy designed space, is the perfect blend for such an event. A portion of the evenings’ sale proceeds will benefit Alliance Francaise. “There is a large space between the Runway and the Fashion Museum where these amazing clothes go and exist – stores like ours act as a unique point where the best pieces can be cycled back from one closet into another and in essence extend the life span and recreate the original excitement for the piece and the brand for a new customer or a new generation. “

Channel, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, and Hermès are renowned high fashion French houses that specialize in haute couture and ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods and fashion accessories.

 "France is the capital fashion of the world. Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Saint Laurent, Hermès; the list is not an exhaustive one. French designers have contributed to the diffusion of the most renowned and sought-after brands in the world. Their innovative style and exceptional techniques have created a long-lasting reputation that can be traced back to the 17th century and continues to grow." said Nicole Marquis, Assistant Director at Alliance Française de Pasadena, "We invite you to join us for a feast for the senses, since light refreshment and nibbles will be served while enjoying this exquisite collection.
