Mignonne Gavigan’s career path chose her after a spontaneous New York moment. Fresh off her days at Parsons Paris, the young fashion designer was experimenting with a beaded vintage gown, when an embellished piece of fabric fell to the floor. She picked it up and fastened it around her neck. A walk home through Soho; a handful of compliments, and the first Mignonne Gavigan design was born.
Over the next seven years, the (foot) traffic-stopping scarf necklace became the Downtown girl’s best-kept secret. Each Mignonne Gavigan collection is an invitation to a new experience. From faraway travels to fleeting moments of beauty, inspiration stems from everywhere. Each piece is handmade in India to achieve the height of artisanship. Fabrics are manipulated to one-of-a-kind textures. Couture construction elements give each creation unique form, bringing it yet another step closer to artwork.
A Mignonne Gavigan accessory is a promise of an adventure. It is a testament to how the modern woman explores the world - unabashedly, confidently, making it her own. It is a morale booster and a catalyst for the unpredictable.
