Mignonne “Maggie” Gavigan Smith, New York City based, North Carolinian bred accessories designer, widely regarded for her playful, color-forward aesthetic and fresh, elevated point of view, continues to redefine wearable designs with a couture sensibility. With strong southern roots and a background designing for luxury fashion brands, Gavigan hones a signature, laid-back style with masterful technique and a designer eye.
After graduation from UNC Chapel Hill, Gavigan’s passions led her to the Sorbonne in Paris where she began her design studies at Parsons Paris and later concluded them at Parsons New York. Following her studies, Gavigan embarked upon her 14-year career in New York designing for multiple fashion houses prior to the launch of her eponymous label in 2014. As she progressed up the design ladder, she was privileged to travel the world extensively, curating the inspirations that now drive and define each new season and collection of her line.
Seeing a void in the marketplace for unique, eye-catching accessories, Gavigan was motivated to reimagine statement jewelry by bringing couture elements into relaxed, universal styles. In 2007, Gavigan felt inspired when she was draping a gown for a fashion show and ripped up a vintage piece to provide inspiration for bead placement. After the show, she fastened the embellished fabric around her neck with a safety pin like a scarf to accessorize her staple tee-shirt, jeans, and sneakers ensemble – a style that would sooner become her signature, acclaimed “scarf necklace” carried throughout each season.
Gavigan has never wavered on her steadfast attention to the details of her one-of-a-kind constructions which have become her hallmark, basing each of her collections on a foundation of premier artisanal craftsmanship, custom prints, and broad use of colorful, unconventional materials – reining elements responsible for earning her a loyal customer base and recognition from leading retailers, press, and celebrities around the globe.
Today, Gavigan is headquartered in New York with her close-knit team and resides in Tribeca with her husband, Gray, their newborn son, Fields, and cat, Franklin.

ALL SALE MERCHANDISE IS FINAL SALE.
Mignonne Gavigan pieces celebrate hand-work and artisan craftsmanship. We stand behind the quality and unique features of each piece. Our embroidered items are handmade, not machine made, and while on a heavily beaded piece there may be a loose bead from time to time, be assured that this will not cause further unravelling of your one of a kind piece. Due to the handmade nature of our products, stones and pearls may vary slightly in shape, size and color.
For our pieces that represent a fusion of embroidery with traditional jewelry hardware, please note that our hardware is plated in 18k gold or polished real rhodium, which may darken or tarnish with normal wear. At this time, we are unable to repair discolored or tarnished items as a result of wear. To preserve your MG pieces and properly care for them, we recommend that you store in a cool, dry place and avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, oils, hairsprays, water and other chemicals. To clean, gently wipe the metal surface with a soft cloth to clean with care and avoid excessive polishing as it may rub off or scratch the plating.
