My Story

Hello and welcome to Developing Style – a platform for socially conscious global style. I am Devi. I was born in the Caribbean, have roots in India, and grew up in Brooklyn, New York.  With such a diverse background, I have a strong appreciation for all things international and a passion for fashion, decor, and food.

For more than a decade, I’ve worked in the field of international development; my goal is to eradicate poverty in the developing countries around the world. Throughout my travels, I’ve met inspiring women who are able to affect real change in their communities. These businesswomen produce beautiful art, clothing, accessories, and food in order to create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities. They find joy in the everyday and continue persevering through endless setbacks. They redefine what it means to be a #ladyboss.

I created Developing Style because I want to share the stories of these women, support their work, and allow conscious consumers to have direct access to their beautiful products. By reading this blog, I hope you are empowered and inspired to start changing the world one purchase at a time. In this spirit, Developing Style is dedicated to global style for the global good.
