Alvin Valley: The Legendary Lord of Pants
Alvin Valley's famous wide band holds tummy fat, bringing focus to the legs. Special stitching in his booty pant pushes the tush upward. Pleats taken in in the thigh as opposed to the belly look sexy. And now, his high waisted skinny pant gives thin girls an elegant alternative to jeans.
His famous clients include Madonna, Halle Berry, Sharon Stone, and Kate Winslet to name only a few.
His “As Is” collection is a secondary line matches the chic of his first line collections. Here, he picks his favorite “As Is” key pieces that span day to night, Summer to Fall, work to cocktails.
He offers the following wisdom:
I think every woman is a trouser girl. Pants are the most important piece in a wardrobe. It’s modern and it doesn’t limit her from doing things she needs to do during the day.
It doesn’t put her in a vulnerable situation. Think about it. Why don’t men wear skirts and high heels? It creates vulnerability.
I love women in military garb. Women have to prove themselves. It gives them freedom to compete.
I think the back is the sexiest part of a woman’s body...A great back can define a great butt. It’s the spine connecting the whole body.
