Jacksonville's Star Designer's Favorite Things

Linda Cunningham scoops on her favorite shopping spots, this season's fashion and more.

Linda Cunningham, a Jacksonville-based fashion designer, has dedicated her life to fashion ever since making colorful ensembles with her mother as a 10-year-old 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).

Q. What are your favorite boutiques on the First Coast?

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

Q. 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.
