About Mignonne
I am a New Yorker with southern roots and a laid back sense of style, and I launched the accessories company, MIGNONNE GAVIGAN, in 2014. I saw a void in the marketplace for eye-catching jewelry that incorporates elements of couture beading and artistry. I live in Tribeca with my husband Gray, our newborn son Fields and our cat Franklin.

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I am hoping to hit 1.5x the revenues we hit last year as well as grow our brand awareness through social media and giving.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Raising a child…doing what’s best for him but feeling like I’m not sure exactly what those things are.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

For us to tackle digital marketing, e-comm and logistics through the end of the year.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Keep working as hard as you can and never give up…the possibilities are endless. Always be nice to people.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I feel empowered by being around women who are striving to be the best versions of themselves and the women involved in the HeyMama community are incredibly kind, driven, accomplished women who inspire me and make me want to be a better person and mother. I feel I have a lot to learn and would be able to by surrounding myself with the HeyMama community.
