Innovation and fashion should not be about cost.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 06, 2017
The internationally-renowned creative director, designer and “king of outerwear” Walter Baker relaunched his website, introducing several new and innovative features to consumers and influencers alike.
Baker has retained the services of a renowned digital agency to bring his new vision for the upcoming season of his Walter Baker brand to life.
Baker launched his first signature line in 1991, which can feel like an eternity in the fashion world. Unsurprisingly, brands like Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdale’s, Saks’ and Neiman Marcus look to him to fit the modern women, with his collections now a globally recognized and revered brand.
“Innovation and fashion should not be about cost. Cost can be prohibitive, while ideas are not. When I think of fashion, my vision is that the owners of my pieces move through their world looking fabulous and feeling their best without any limits,” said Mr. Baker.
Among its storied history, Walter Baker’s brands have been covered by VOGUE, InStyle, Marie Claire, Lucky, Cosmopolitan and more. Walter Baker has dressed Katy Perry, Rihanna, Blake Lively, and Taylor Swift, to name a few of the female superstars who covet his designs and keen eye for trends and timelessness.
On the decision to partner with a digital agency, Mr. Baker said, “Like technology, fashion moves faster than the speed of light. It made perfect sense to work with a partner who could innovate at the speed I’m comfortable with--supersonic.”
Ms. Vanessa Ferrelli is Managing Director of myEPK Media, the agency serving as Baker’s digital and marketing partner. myEPK Media has served celebrities, non-profits, businesses and more as they venture into digital & print. Among the features they have introduced together is an influencer’s section, which will allow social media influencers across platforms to share Walter Baker's signature line on Snap, Instagram and more.
“It was important to Walter to make it even easier to leverage the relationships he’s built with street style icons, like Natalie Suarez and Danielle Bernstein. We wanted to highlight how important they are in this journey,” said Ms. Ferrelli.
The website is live at walterbaker.com and includes a new user experience, more products and a new layout for finding and purchasing the same products that the stars wear. In addition, use of the hashtag #WalterBaker will allow the site to regularly feature user/influencer photos and Street Style.
