Launching her first ready-to-wear collection in September 2005, New York designer Lyn Devon was quickly named a rising star in women's design by the Fashion Group International and accepted as a member of the CFDA soon after. Combining a background in classic American design—she got her start with Ralph Lauren—with a bold, creative perspective (while at Ralph Lauren, she designed her own custom clothing out of her living room for a private clientele), Devon creates fresh, spirited pieces with a timeless elegance.
