Walter is an entrepreneur and self-taught fashion designer born in Guatemala. Currently based in New York, he founded WALTHERIA in 2011. His designs are characterized by the use of geometry, the study of structure of the garments and the use of eclectic and bold colors and prints.


Walter studied Civil Engineering at Universidad del Valle de Guatemala while attending to art classes. Before graduation, he had already presented two collections and subsequently studied patternmaking and sewing at Intecap. During his time in Guatemala, the designer was also an advocate of the raising independent fashion movement in the country by promoting and producing runway shows, exhibitions and forums. After effective recognition through participation in various events and publications in Guatemala’s main national media, he moved to New York City where he keeps reinventing his vision.
