In 2011, she created her first embroidery pieces, experimenting with sequins and beads. As her enthusiasm grew, she decided to take courses in fashion design in Chicago, followed by textile classes at the famed Central Saint Martins, London. In 2016, she studied the craft of ‘crochet de Lunéville’ at Hand & Lock, winning first place at the annual embroidery competition. Transatlantic consecration of her talents came in 2018 when Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills commissioned three panels.
France is very near and dear to Devi because it’s where she fell in love with art, beauty, craftsmanship, and style. Coming full circle, it was also in Paris that she found the first gallery to exhibit her works in 2017, at Galerie Bettina on the rue Bonaparte, close to the Ecole des Beaux Arts. In 2019, she joined Mayaro, a gallery and showroom dedicated to living heritage and craftsmanship.
Devi’s works are featured in private collections in Paris, London, Florence, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Washington DC and Doha.
Devi’s talk will focus on her dedication to quality materials and the overall design process.
