Cesar Galindo began his career on Seventh Avenue during the mid 1980s, when, after moving from his native city of Houston, Texas, he became Carmelo Pomodoro’s assistant designer. After developing the U.S. presence of TSE cashmere, Galindo began designing his own signature label, selling to upscale designer boutiques including Martha Henri Bendel, as well as large store chains such as Bloomingdale’s.
Often called upon to develop, customize and refine a designer’s vision, his work is showcased internationally and is featured in print, as well as on television and in films. Galindo has worked for Dolce and Gabbana and is also part of The Creative Development and Design Team at Calvin Klein Women’s Collection. Beginning in 2003, Cesar began an ongoing collaboration with Seth Cohen, a menswear and accessory designer. Together, they create cocktail and eveningwear collections that are imbued with the technical skills and creative artistry of Galindo and the color and silhouette direction of Cohen.

The Lyn Devon collection is a reflection of her passion for modernizing iconic American design. She has a keen sensibility for bringing precise tailoring and impeccable finishing to clothing you can live in. Inspired by American icons like Audrey Hepburn and the collections of iconic American designers from McCardell and Beene to Mizrahi and Lauren, she combines timeless elegance with her own bold and spirited perspective.
Born and raised in New York, Lyn Devon received her degree at Brown University and went on to study at Parsons. Devon designed women’s ready-to-wear for Ralph Lauren.
While there, she began designing and producing custom clothing out of her living room for a small private clientele. This allowed her to cultivate her design philosophy with a unique approach that brings the customers’ needs to the forefront of her creative process.
Lyn Devon presented her first full ready-to-wear collection in September 2005, and was quickly named Women’s Design “Rising Star” by the Fashion Group International. Following the debut of her Fall/Winter 2008 collection, Style.com called her one of “The Season’s 10 Most Promising Talents” and soon after she was awarded the prestigious Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for women’s wear. In October 2009, she was accepted as one of the 30 new members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
