As a New Yorker with southern roots and a laid back sense of style, designer Mignonne “Maggie” Gavigan Smith launched MIGNONNE GAVIGAN in 2014, seeing a void in the marketplace for eye-catching jewelry that incorporates elements of couture beading and artistry. Reimagining statement jewelry, MIGNONNE GAVIGAN brings couture elements into unique, wearable jewelry designs. Mignonne’s signature scarf necklace launched the collection in 2014 when she ripped a couture gown, tied it around her neck and wore it with a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers. Her designs are a mix of high fashion, street-style and vintage finds that come together into a fun, refreshing and unique aesthetic. Mignonne is drawn to a bold use of color and texture in her designs, shaped by her vast experience designing for luxury brands. Over her 14 year career in design prior to launching MIGNONNE GAVIGAN, she traveled the world extensively curating the inspiration that now drives each new season and collection from MIGNONN GAVIGAN. MIGNONNE GAVIGAN is defined by ornate details, elevated craftsmanship, and luxe materials. The Collection has evolved from the Signature Scarf Necklace to include earrings, bracelets, and scarves that speak to all ages. The brand has been featured in leading publications such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and has a growing celebrity following. It is sold worldwide in over 100 boutiques and in major retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Intermix, Calypso and Anthropologie. Mignonne graduated from UNC Chapel Hill, and moved to Paris where she pursued fashion and further studies at the Sorbonne and Parsons Paris. She concluded her fashion studies at Parsons New York. Maggie and her husband Gray reside in Tribeca with their newborn son Fields and cat Franklin.
