Michele M. Walden brings chic to the term “knitwear.” Through her Michi knitwear designs, Walden creates sophisticated knits that are also easy to wear and easy to wash. With off-the-shoulder designs and hip-hugging evening attire, or loose and breezy, summer afternoon wear, Michi knitwear makes a unique statement for all women - tall, short, large, small and in between. Walden custom designs and fits the piece for her client, and does not call the outfit complete until the customer is satisfied. A Queens, NY native, Walden has been knitting about 22 years

This is in my modeling days.
 I first started as a fit model for a young up and coming knit wear designer, Ms Michi      She was good.

I loved all the outfits she designed for me. They made me feel like a million bucks.

I felt like such a lady. They were so fine and elegant.
We made a good team. She would knit me a lovely outfit and I would exhibit them at parties and social events.

I could wear her close fitting knit wear well because of my dancers figure. We had no idea that she would go on to be a top knit wear designer of New York,

Michi currently utilizes the knitting machine to create feminine and sensual wearable art pieces. These include what is quick becoming her trademark: knitwear adorned with cowrie shells. Each of her pieces, whether completed by hand or on the machine, is either a one-of-a-kind or a limited-edition creation. She uses carefully selected yarns that vary from silks to mohair, wool to linen, and run the gamut of colors from bright orange to muted tans to fiery red.
