A designer for anyone who loves COLOURFUL, PLAYFUL JEWELLERY …
WHO? Mignonne Gavigan, originally from North Carolina, studied at the Sorbonne as well as Parsons Paris and New York. She launched her name-sake collection in 2014 after working as an accessory and footwear designer for Marc Jacobs, Loeffler Randall and Rachel Roy.
WHAT? Her signature Madeline earrings and scarf necklaces are super-light and inject a playful edge into even the most pared-back outfit. They are created around the idea of couture beading and all made on a crinkled chiffon base. Wear them with a printed midi dress or a great jacket, jeans and sneakers.
INSPIRATION: Gavigan travels a lot, visiting local markets for inspiration.
FUNNY FACT: “I was named after my godmother Mignonne LaChapelle – she and my mother were Pan Am hostesses. My father wanted to call me Mary Magdalene,” she says.
STYLING TIP: She likes to wear two necklaces at a time for added drama.
LOOK OUT FOR: A homeware line coming soon. It’s a natural fit.
Mignonne Gavigan is at Loulerie, 14b Chatham Street, Dublin 2.
