Dept of Finery fuses uncompromising quality with a unique craftsmanship to consistently define the balance between urban style and polished sophistication. Having spent over 10 years working in the footwear industry, Melissa Butera, the founder and creative director behind the brand, saw an opening in the accessories market. Based on a philosophy of balance, Dept of Finery creations bridge the gap between high street commercial brands that sacrifice quality for value and brands whose quality is unobtainable.
Melissa’s unique interpretation of balance between niche and commercial design aesthetic is a manifestation of her surroundings and personal style. Inspired by world travels, arts, culture, and people, each Dept of Finery creation is designed for an independent, creative, and confident woman with a true appreciation for quality and individual style. She is effortlessly chic.
Dedicated to its customers, Dept of Finery continues to deliver well-crafted designs while remaining authentic and true to its philosophy – a balance between an eclectic mix of old and new, raw and refined classics.
