LO­CAL DE­SIGN

Where First Coast - - WHERE NOW -

Linda Cun­ning­ham, a Jack­sonville-based de­signer, has ded­i­cated her life to fash­ion ever since mak­ing col­or­ful en­sem­bles with her mother as a 10-yearold girl. To­day, she de­signs her own cou­ture line fea­tur­ing dresses, for­mal wear and bridal, plus a ready-to-wear line fo­cus­ing on time­less, so­phis­ti­cated looks at her own epony­mous bou­tiques in Jack­sonville. (1049 Kings Ave., 904.399.4864) and Hous­ton (3310 Ed­loe St., 713.621.3232/ www.lin­da­cun­ning­ham.com)

What are your fa­vorite bou­tiques on the First Coast?

My fa­vorite places to shop are Ther­a­pie in San Marco ( 1960 San Marco Blvd., Jack­sonville), Edge City in 5 Points ( 1017 Park St, Jack­sonville) and Goldfinch in St. Au­gus­tine ( 77 San Marco Ave.)

What’s “in” this sea­son?

My must-haves right now are leather-ac­cented pieces, the color red, cropped sweaters— es­pe­cially over long blouses, state­ment-mak­ing belts, lay­ered bracelets and neck­laces.
