About Gigi Burris Millinery:
Like the most famous milliners before her, Gigi Burris affirmed her craft in Paris as a student at Parsons. The Gigi Burris label followed soon after, and with it, her respect for artisanship. Each Gigi Burris piece is manufactured by hand locally and sustainably minded in New York City. Hats are created using the centuries-old technique of hand blocking on wooden blocks. Her couture feather-work employs intricate millinery treatments, flowers are handmade by a floral atelier, and each crystal is individually placed. Burris is just as meticulous in choosing materials, doing extensive research to find just the right up cycled fabric or inventive detail to complete a piece. Gigi Burris is a member of the CFDA, Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist, and Forbes 30 under 30 Honoree.
