Edward Walker jokes that he's not only a master designer, but a master "McGyver"! "Give me some paint, fabric and wood and I can recreate the Taj Mahal." Okay, maybe not, but certainly a room any homeowner would love. Edward prides himself on his versatility and ability to work with any materials within any budget. Talents he's built a career upon while designing couture gowns in New York City, and fanciful interiors in the Carolinas. While on set for Trading Spaces, Edward enjoys the challenges of limited time and budget. "I like to mix metropolitan chic with southern sensibilities. It combines the excitement of the city with the comfort of childhood." No surprise to find that Edward holds a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. He recently relocated back home to North Carolina where he's built a design house in Raleigh, specializing in exclusive wedding gowns as well as personalized interiors.
