After more than 18 years of running an influential boutique on Los Angeles’ Westside, and dressing Los Angeles’ women in designers such as Balenciaga, Balmain and Bottega Veneta, among other labels, Elyse Walker produced her first presentation of Fall looks on Sept. 21.

It took place at the Zinqué restaurant by the 1-year-old Elyse Walker boutique in Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, Calif., which is her second physical store.

Walker produced two events on Sept. 21. There was a dinner for 30 of the VIP customers for the Newport Beach Elyse Walker store. There also was a luncheon presentation for press and Orange County–based bloggers earlier in the day.

Models displayed 15 head-to-toe looks styled by Elyse Walker. Walker said that the trends reflected what she had seen on runways and at markets in Milan, Paris, London, New York and Los Angeles. Cresting trends included velvets and metallics.

Brands and vendors seen at the presentation included Michelle Mason, Iro, A.L.C., Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler.
