Hand-made Thursdays – Device
Melanie Ferrara is a modern day designer of nostalgic, feminine clothing based in Toronto, Canada. Her Device line was created for women who adore high fashion, but whose priorities lie with more practical matters such as versatility, quality, and social and environmental impact. The collections are characterized by their classic design, vintage-inspired details, superior construction techniques, and high quality eco-friendly fabrics. This Alchemy Dress has a loose, breezy shape which lends itself well to warm temperatures. Sleeveless with a wide, scooped neck with a hemline that skims an inch or two above the knee. The pleated panels on the front neckline drape down and across the body, converging at the back under a tab. 100% tencel jersey. $138 USD.
This Florence top has a soft cowl neckline that is not too deep, with elbow-length sleeves. Made of 66% Bamboo, 28% Cotton & 6% Spandex terryback jersey. $44 USD. Each piece is hand-made in Toronto. Her Etsy-shop ships everywhere.
