At 34, emerging designer Mignonne (Maggie) Gavigan has already put her footprint on the fashion world. She left a very cool job as the senior shoe designer at one of my favorite brands Loeffler Randall (FYI: love these LF sandals, and they're 20% off right now) to launch her eponymous accessory line.
