Best Clothing Designer

Gail Chovan

Gail Chovan went from French student to fashionista when she launched her own clothing line, and founded Blackmail Boutique in 1997. This chic artist's dark palette, featured everywhere from Us to Elle, is sure to heat up the hearts and hangers of clothing-conscious Austinites. But don't look for her here during the summer months: Like a merle noir (French for blackbird) she spends the hottest months en France.
