The Victory Violet Suit by Devel Branded

One of the exciting prizes from winning Miss Pinup New Zealand was a custom made garment from Devel Branded.

I requested a 1940s style suit- something I’m not able to buy vintage as whenever the jacket fits my measurements, the skirt is always too small in the hips.


Danielle was such a pleasure to work with and is so passionate! I could tell she was excited about the project and she sourced some beautiful fabrics for me to pick from. 

Of course I chose the purple… I mean how could I not? The colour is so vibrant and paired with the black velvet details it was a match made in heaven.


She created this fabulous skirt suit with matching lining, 3/4 sleeves and POCKETS!

Danielle even hand painted this beautiful motif on the inside of the jacket- a special reminder of my achievement.


Part of the collaboration was also this blog post- 6 Questions With: Miss Victory Violet’ and you can read Danielle’s on the suit with more details on the construction here.


The Victory Violet suit is a truly a thing of beauty! Devel takes custom orders for whatever your vintage heart desires so be sure to get in contact with Danielle!- [email protected]
