Bridal Sign Up

C’est Très Mignon(ette)

Mignonette

“Vintage modern” is how Kpoene’ Kofi-Nicklin of Mignonette bridal boutique describes her aesthetic, though as a skilled seamstress she can do it all. “I’ve done more minimalist and architectural dresses, but I’m drawn to a more romantic look—I love lace, chiffon and everything ethereal. I want people to be comfortable and beautiful at the same time.” Kofi-Nicklin, a recent San Francisco transplant and trained FIT alum, only works with the best materials such as silk and chiffon, never using polyester or nylon for her custom work. In addition, the store acts as a showroom for accessory collections by more than 40 local artists, such as Violet Bells Bridal veils, feather headdresses from Pish Poshes and even menswear by Humble Collective’s Jonathan Chávez.
