Take a tour through DEVAL - a Christchurch boutique with an onsite factory

Launched in 2007, Deval has two bricks and mortar stores in Christchurch as well as an online store. What many people don't know about Deval, is that they have an onsite factory operating out of their boutique at The Tannery. On a recent visit to the store, I was taken through the factory and was blown away at the size of the production! With twelve full-time pattern drafters, sewers, design developers, fabric cutters and finishing experts, it is a hive of activity and a bustling operation.

As I browsed the racks filled with beautiful and feminine pieces, I was immediately drawn in by owner operator Debbie Lawson and her team. Their passion and enthusiasm for fashion and genuine love of the brand is infectious and in no time I found myself in the fitting room trying on their new Sidney leather range. Committed to going above and beyond for their clients, the ladies at Deval will custom fit you for a garment if you are in between sizes and have a personalised piece created for you in the workroom! 

As experienced stylists, Deval offers a personal styling service, either in store or if you are visiting Christchurch, in your hotel! You can enjoy a glass of bubbles while the experts create inspired outfits for you from their Deval or International range. 

You can view or shop their full collection at www.deval.co.nz, including brands such as; Ragdoll, Citizens of Humanity, Camilla, Vanessabruno, and Agolde -  to name a few!
