How many Milliners do you know? That’s what I thought. Millinery is a dying art, but Gigi Burris is determined to keep it alive.
Not too long ago, my husband was traveling for work and saw one of Gigi’s hats in the hotel magazine. Knowing how important shade is for me–I had melanoma—he ordered her beautiful, wide-brimmed straw hat with grosgrain ribbon and a beautiful black feather as a Valentine’s Day gift. I was immediately taken by the hat and the hand-written note from the artisan who made it—she clearly understood Gracious Gifting! I went to her website to learn more and was equally as intrigued by her story and her designs. On a whim, I decided to reach out and see if she would sell me some of her headwear for Rumson Gifts & Home Furnishings! She said yes!
Gigi Burris founded her business in 2009 after earning a BFA from Parsons Design School and studying in Paris. She has since been featured in fashion magazines, Vogue Italia, Elle and W, among many others, and can name Angelina Jolie and Rhianna as just a few of her celebrity clients.
Rumson Gifts & Home Furnishings is now happy to be the only place you can purchase Gigi’s fine millinery in Atlanta. Thursday April 30th through Saturday May 2nd, we will be hosting a trunk show with Gigi Burris Millinery as the star of the show. We have a great selection of hand-made fedoras, wide brimmed hats, headbands, flower crowns and fascinators. Each one is perfect for Steeplechase, The Derby, Mother’s Day or any day!
We hope you will come by and see why Gigi has been named one of the top accessories designers to watch worldwide by Harper’s Bazaar. To learn more about Gigi, visit her website, gigiburris.com.
