Lars Wallin was born in Västerås, Sweden, in 1965. He has been fascinated by the aesthetically beautiful for as long as he can remember.
At the age of four, his mother took him to see the “Holiday on Ice” show. When the lights suddenly came on, a princess was skating clothed in shimmering gold, crisp crinolines and feathers on her head. Lars was so taken by the situation that he could hardly breathe. For the next fourteen years, Lars and his mother went to see this event.
In 1986, Lars moved to Stockholm to work as a decorator and to study design. The following year, he became a full-time student at Beckmans College of Design from where he graduated in 1990. In September, despite having no capital, he started his own business focusing on couture to maximize his creative impact and level of quality.
It was tough in the beginning, but the turning point came in 1992 when Lars designed all the garments for a show held by famous hair stylist Björn Axén. The show was a success and Lars Wallin became a name in the showbiz industry resulting in many assignments.
With his exquisite taste for design, Lars has won many prestigious assignments and prizes over the years including Best Evening Gown in the 1997 Miss World Competition. He can even claim to be a Swedish Royal Court designer, having created the Nobel Banquet gowns for Crown Princess Victoria in 2000, 2003 and 2006, and for Princess Madeleine in 2008.
Lars has always considered jewelry an important part of couture design. In 2011, he launched his jewelry collection, and followed by fashion and dining collections three years later. His level of ambition is higher than ever before and with the support of a strong designer, marketing and investor team, the future looks bright for everyone interested in genuine and exciting designs.
