Eliza Jane sits in the corner that has become hers for so many years. She is wearing her favorite plum cotton dress with the white eyelet ruffles, looking out into the room where Lorna Dávalos is busy designing. At the age of eight, Dávalos created this custom piece for her on her mother's foot-treadle sewing machine. Her childhood baby doll has been looking over her ever since.
Growing up in Michigan, Dávalos always knew she had creativity to share with the world but lacked an outlet until that day. Today, a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology, experience with the international sweater house Autumn Cashmere Inc., and founder of Dávalos Designs, she is known for her attention to detail, creating beautiful custom, intensely feminine and magnificently chic, haute couture evening and bridal designs for her clients. Dávalos' talent for elegant apparel has given her experience and love for working with some of the finest fabrics on earth. Through her love of dance, she is drawn to the beauty of movement, and it is reflected in her elegant creations that float romantically to life as they move across a room. The glow in her brides' eyes while wearing these luxurious pieces inspired her to provide similar fabulous transformations for women everyday wear through her exceptional scarf collection.
Made of rich silk charmeuse and chiffons, Dávalos scarves and wraps are refreshingly distinctive and will make anyone feel on top of the world. The looks are so fabulous that reports of compliments have traveled from across crowded rooms to entire continents.
A Dávalos scarf or wrap is simply a-must have piece!
