ABOUT THE BRAND
The Devon Thomas Collection celebrates the casual elegance of a bygone era in fashion. With a focus on understated design, luxurious fabric and rich color palettes and prints Devon Thomas strives to create a collection of luxurious, indulgent staples that are thoughtfully constructed to combine a modern ease with a classically feminine aesthetic.
Being a mother, wife and a designer, Devon is inspired by strong, free spirited women with a penchant for art and travel who value effortless style over trends.
Devon fell in love with fashion at a very young age; if you ask her she will tell you that she always knew that she would become a fashion designer. Inspired by her grandmother’s love for vibrant color and her mother’s taste for a more tailored silhouette, Devon dreamed of studying design at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City.
But life had other plans.
Devon attended Seton Hall University and earned a BA in Social and Behavioral Sciences. Upon graduating, Devon had the opportunity to satisfy her calling for fashion landing a position with the iconic Liz Claiborne Inc. After three years with the industry heavyweight, the next chapter of her life came calling -- parenthood.
Five years away from corporate life to raise her three wonderful boys and the calling to fashion was stronger than ever. Devon knew that if she wanted to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a professional fashion designer, she had to find a way to take her talents to the industry -- even if it meant starting her own fashion design business from the ground up.
Working at home while caring for three children was a daunting challenge but within a few short months she was designing garments for a growing clientele, doing shows across the country and being courted by local boutiques.
For Devon, design has always been a deeply rooted passion, an intrinsic part of her life like the air she breathes. She feels that the time is right to share that passion and her unique perspective on fashion for women.
