Nina Griscom collection specially designed for GiGi New York is an eclectic collection of sophisticated leather bags and accessories that immediately caught my attention when I entered the sponsor’s brand suite, in Dallas.
I have an eye for high quality, stylish things, no doubt and this is no exception. I loved every single piece she designed, especially the black and white bags.
I remember reading an interview of Nina Griscom in W Magazine about “What happens when a woman who once commanded attention walks down the street and nary a man turns his head? Nina Griscom faces the mirror and manages to smile.”
I was really impressed. She grew up in New York in the ’60s and she says she had three interests boys, boys, and sports. She signed with Eileen Ford and started modeling at a very young age just to gain financial independence.
By the time I was 22, I was one of the agency’s top earners, booking ads for Revlon, Maybelline, Clairol, and Saks Fifth Avenue and racking up covers for French Elle, Italian Vogue, and Town & Country.

We collaborated with GiGi New York in a Trend Survivor outfit post styling one of my favorite clutches from the Nina Griscom collection and using Dallas as a backdrop. Stay tuned.
