Meet milliner Gigi Burris at TenOverSix this Friday.
When it comes to head accessories, there are two different categories: The perfect complement to a fall ensemble and Princess Eugenie at the Royal Wedding. And while this probably goes without saying, we’re going to do it anyways—you should always avoid the latter.
Flordia-born Gigi Burris is here to help you do that. After graduating from Parsons with her BFA in Fashion Design, the designer made an unusual career move—from ready-to-wear to millinery. But it seems to have been a great career move. After all, TenOverSix‘s Kristen Cole has been a fan of Burris since her first collection debuted in 2009.
“It felt so fresh and vibrant,” Cole says. “Her line is a very youthful, but with the technique and craft of an old-world French milliner.”
Burris was recenlty a CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund finalist and has developed a strong cult fashion following thanks to fashion icons like Rihanna and Lady Gaga wearing her millinery creations.
So whether you’re battling the frost or just adding the polishing touch to that perfect fall outfit (third option: hiding a bad hair day), Gigi Burris’s designs are your new BFF for fall.
The Details: Meet Gigi Burris and shop the AW 16 Collection at TenOverSix this Friday, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. 1511 Commerce Street.
