Gigi Burris Millinery was founded in 2009, on a passionate love of both headwear and unique luxury. Inspired by the craft of an art that is slowly dying and reveling in the idea that a smaller group of people are able to preserve the art of hat making, with only the finest material and couture sewing techniques being used. Finding kindred spirits in Jeanne Lanvin and Gabrielle Chanel, who also began their fashion careers as milliners, Gigi Burris takes pride in preserving the delicate craft.
As a 6th generation Floridian, it is no surprise that one of Gigi's favorite materials to utilize is alligator skin, and even more meaningful, some of the luxurious skins come from gators captured on family property. Gigi, 23, resided in New York and her studio is located in the east village.
