Known together as "The MiGi Girls", Michele Adams and Gia Russo bring their personable charm and fresh, unique style to everyday living through their television shows, lifestyle books, product lines and magazine editorials. Michele and Gia met while working as editors and designers for Martha Stewart Living in New York City. In 1999 they left Martha Stewart Living and moved to Los Angeles to form their own company.
As television personalities, Michele and Gia hosted two Fine Living Network shows: The Art of the Party with the MiGi Girls and The Perfect Surprise Party. They have appeared as guests on numerous programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Weekend Today in New York and Style Network. They partnered with AOL to host a series called Entertaining with Michele and Gia that featured video clips, GMC-sponsored tips, podcasts, mobile downloads and party tips. Their engaging style has also led to endorsements and roles as spokespersons with high-profile brands such as Baby Gap, Amazon and Pepperidge Farm. Gia recently was the design expert on the TLC lifestyle makeover series REAL SIMPLE. REAL LIFE. Each of the series' 15 hour-long episodes helped busy women tackle their daily challenges, sharing strategies to help make life easier.
Michele and Gia also penned a series of three lifestyle books: At Home with Friends, Wedding Showers and Baby Showers. Their first book was selected for Oprah's Book List, was on the best-seller list at Amazon, and nominated for a Gourmand International Award for best entertaining book. They have contributed to over 100 editorials in such titles as InStyle, O Magazine, Lucky, Glamour and Fit Pregnancy.
Fall 2006 brought the launch of their own line of MiGi-branded products: The MiGi Baby Collection (a top pick with celebrity moms) and MiGi Tabletop (items for home and entertaining). The recently launched MiGi line of stationery, a collaboration between the MiGi girls and current Tiny Prints designer Kirby Woodson of Petite Alma, is now available at tinyprints.com. In summer 2009, two custom MiGi-designed "new baby" floral arrangements will be available through Teleflora.
When Michele and Gia are not working, they are busy running after their 3-year old boys.
We all want a home that reflects who we are. A place that is truly our own, that is comfortable, inviting and warm. Sometimes we forget how important it is to create spaces where we can live, entertain and celebrate life's special moments, milestones and memories. A full and well-balanced life starts at home, by creating an environment that reflects the best of who we are and who we want to be.
MiGi believes this is made possible by embracing personal style and making it accessible. This means using affordable materials in unexpected ways, improvising to mix and match effortlessly, but always with a realistic eye towards function. Drawing inspiration from the classics and vintage, MiGi creates new combinations of colors, textures and fabrics making it possible for everyone to achieve their own signature style, truly turning any space into a home.
