During the time I was going through Little Edie's boxes after she passed away, I discovered some items that sparked an idea for me to start a legacy brand. Edie had made such an impression, and I thought her legacy must live on.
Recently I met with Tony Bravo, a style editor for the San Francisco Chronicle Style section. Guess what we had in common? A passion for Grey Gardens and Little Edie!! We talked for hours about our story and where we were headed with our legacy brand Grey Gardens®.
Tony Bravo had an idea to do a Grey Gardens fashion shoot with the Grey Gardens jewelry collection plus designers such as Miu Miu, Valentino, Dries Van Noten, Comme des Garcon, Burberry, Stuart Weitzman, Alice and Olivia, and Dirk Van Saene. This was a very special Grey Gardens fashion shoot because Maria Beale is Little Edie's grand-niece and did a beautiful job channelling the boho spirit of the Grey Gardens film. Our jewelry looked amazing with these designer collections.
