About

Inside Studio Davina

Hello there! I'm Davina, aka Dawn Devine and thanks for stopping by Studio Davina. My mission is to help dancers design and make beautiful costumes for themselves and others! Along with the books that I write and self-publish, I occasionally share materials, supplies, and sometimes even finished garments made here in studio Davina.

Recently, I've been totally obsessed with an exotic specialty fabric Egypt called assiut or assuit or... well.. lets just say there are loads of accepted spellings for this fabric! In October of 2014, I published my book, "The Cloth of Egypt: All About Assiut," what has become the seminal book on the subject. During 2017, I'll be focussed on developing a companion book, "Assiut Belly Dance Costuming in Detail." So I will be making garments, costumes, and accessories throughout the year.

If you are interested in following the progress of my new book, you can visit my website and join my mailing list, join me on Facebook or Instagram.

Happy Costuming and Delicious Dancing!

Additional policies and FAQs
Q. Why do we ship 5 business days after payment?
A. I run my business and travel quite a lot teaching classes and workshops. This 5 day window allows me time to get home and process orders. I appreciate your understanding.

Q. Do you do custom orders?
I find it difficult to do custom orders long distance and prefer to work with clients who are able to come to my studio for fittings and design consultations. If you are located in the Greater Bay/ San Francisco Area, you can contact me for my current availability.
