For my recently launched “Fashion Friday” series, I especially enjoy featuring fashion icons and designers who also have fabulous style at home. I am a huge fan of Devon Baer Designs, and I also adore founder Devon Haire’s chic Manhattan apartment, which was featured in the April 2012 issue of Matchbook Magazine. Devon’s collections are inspired by a Palm Beach cocktail party, and her clothing line has become synonymous with Palm Beach style. “I wanted it to have a slight 1960s feel but at the same time come off as refreshing and new,” she said. “There’s definitely a beachy vibe in there as well.” Let’s revisit the 2012 feature and learn more about Devon through a Q&A!
Devon Baer Designs founder, Devon Haire was born and raised outside of Philadelphia. Her love of fashion was sparked at a young age by her passion for color, pattern, and unique style. Devon received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Syracuse University fashion program and soon moved to Manhattan where she held an array of jobs in the design field. She founded Devon Baer Designs in 2010, and her collection can be purchased through devonbaer.com and Tuckernuck. Devon currently resides in Manhattan with her husband and 15 month-old son. She recently moved to a new apartment in the same building two floors up… stay tuned for more images!
