WCW: Miss Monique Sweet

This month I’m crushing all over a lovely local pin-up lass, who goes by the name Miss Monique Sweet. You may recognise her from such kooky Devel custom designs as the famous Watermelon Skirt, and Strawberry Two-Piece seen at last year’s Very Vintage Day Out event in Auckland. She was also the spark for the fire that is the Freshly Squeezed collection. And now she is up for one BIG EXCITING opportunity in the form of being crowned Miss Viva Las Vegas 20!

Project: The Rootin’ Tootin’ Two-Piece

This summer I was commissioned to design and make a custom retro two-piece with a western flavour, by local vintage-lover Olivia (aka Veronica Kay). She had in-mind a pair of 1970’s bootie shorts, a matching top, and ALL the fringing. I gathered up some 1970’s inspiration, worked through a handful of designs for her, and the cropped western shirt option was the winner of the day!

2016: The Year That Was

Hope you’ve all been enjoying a wonderful break over this festive season, whether your feet are in sand or snow. 2016 was a turbulent year for many; we all lost an idol or two, we saw (and continue to see) some horrific things happening in the US and other parts of the world, and as always, life throws some personal-life curve-balls in there too.

This capelet is pure decadence and is definitely one of my most prized pieces in my wardrobe. I would definitely recommend having a custom piece made by Devel to anyone. Ruby Rabbit

Danielle pours her heart into each of her garments, making each piece of Devel clothing worth every penny. Wearing a Devel item out and about guarantees dropped jaws and compliments. Samara Pepperell

I really enjoyed having her make this garment for me.  I would definitely love to have another piece made by Devel in the future.  Devel is perfect if you are looking for a one of a kind piece! Jennie Skulander
