Likewise for Devon’s private clients. “Most of them are women who could buy anything but are really intrigued by something new,” Devon says. “I think the aspect of discovery is exciting for them. A lot of these women are involved in the arts. They’re teaching classes at the International Center of Photography and advising on the board of the Guggenheim. They’re always excited about something new in this city.” And in other locations, as well. Devon hosts trunk shows for her loyalists and their friends in high places such as Palm Beach and Greenwich, Connecticut. Not exactly playgrounds for the young and hip, but indeed emerging markets for this emerging designer.
