The way we dress affects the way that we think. The way we dress affects the way that we feel. It affects the way that we act. It affects the way that others react to us. The difference between style and fashion is quality. This is especially true when it comes to couture fashion with Lourdes Chavez.

Lourdes Chavez began designing beautiful clothing after her graduation from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising specializing in couture design. Her career began with two prestigious houses in Los Angeles. A few years later she blossomed when she opened her own house in December of 1997.

She is a talented pattern maker and sewer which enhances her house, but she was born and meant to be a designer. She hand sketches every item with attention to detail for each individual clients needs. She has a clear focus on future trends while keeping her styles classic and timeless.

Each year, this Los Angeles based house creates two stunning collections, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. Here are my favorite looks from the Fall/Winter 2016 Collection.
