I don’t know about you, but the worlds of fashion and design have always fascinated me. Mood boards, color palettes, fabrics, there’s definitely a lot of overlap between the two; both serve as a gateway toward personal expression, art, and those perfectly curated aesthetics. So understandably, I was stoked when Devon agreed to sit down and chat with us about her business, and the way it has shaped her life. To this day, she continues to help women truly hone in on their sense of style while transforming their looks into something, elegant, elevated, and sustainable.
Ok, we’d love to know! What’s your absolute favorite aspect of styling your clients?
I have been fortunate enough to witness the transformative effect that the right outfit can have on someone. There’s an undeniable shift in their energy, a glimmer in their eyes when they put on a garment that truly resonates with them. It’s a moment of empowerment, a reminder that they have the power to embrace their uniqueness and be proud of who they are and watch them feel comfortable in their own skin.
How has a strong sense of style navigated you through difficult times in your life?
I recently lost my dad and my world felt upside down and in some ways, it still feels upside down. But every day I get dressed even if I am deep in grief. I believe the power of routine and getting dressed helps propel you forward and I know he would want me to still get up every day, get dressed, and look for all of life’s little joys.
How has your love for fashion shaped the way you decorate your personal spaces?
Fashion has always been my ultimate form of self-expression and allows me to foster my creativity through clothes. But my deep love for home and vintage started at a young age going to flea markets with my mom and that really shaped how I decorate my home now…I love mixing the old with the new.
Have you ever taken your client’s interior design style and transferred it to their wardrobe? If so, how? (i.e. colors/textures/shapes?)
Ironically I have a lot of clients who are interior designers which is so fun for me because I look at what they love to create in a home and translate it into their wardrobe by creating a mood board. For example, if my client’s interior design style is laid back and neutral, I often will pull clothes that have a similar feeling.
Can you give us a glimpse into your creative process with clients, what does it look like to go from ideation to creation?
When I first meet my clients we have an in-depth conversation about what they are looking for and any challenges with their style. I create a mood board to show them a visual of where we want to go with their style and I shop for them and bring a rack of clothes to their home. They get to try on clothes in the comfort of their own home with their existing clothes and this helps pull together complete looks that start to make up their own unique personal style.
