Michi Knit Wear

Michele M. Walden Mcphee brings chic to the term “knitwear.”  Through her Michi Knitwear designs, Walden Mcphee creates sophisticated knits that are easy to wear and easy to pack.  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 Mcphee 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 Mcphee, has been knitting over 20 years.  Initially hand knitting all of her designs, Walden Mcphee’s fashion statements have included jumpsuits, bathing suits, dresses, suits, two-piece outfits, sweaters, shrugs and scarves. After completing courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Walden Mcphee has become proficient in using the knitting machine to create the majority of her pieces.  These include what is quickly becoming one of her trademarks: knitwear adorned with cowrie shells.  Each of her pieces, whether completed by hand or on the knitting machine, is either a one-of-a-kind or limited edition creation.  She uses carefully selected yarns that vary from silks to rayon, wool to linen, and run the gamut of colors from orange to muted tans to fuschia and olive green.
