It all began with a spontaneous New York moment that forever changed the course of Mignonne Gavigan’s career. 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. All jewelry is handmade in India by skilled artisans who use couture construction elements to create unique pieces that are like wearable art.
