Design Creative Of The Week: Minnie-Mae Stott [Fashion/Textiles/Accessories]
The hottest new talent of the week brought to you by PSFK x Arts Thread. This week a young fashion designer who has brought London's Nottinghill Carnival to life in her latest collection.
Our Creative Of The Week taken from ARTS THREAD’s graduate portfolios is Minnie-Mae Stott whose vibrant colourful work spans a wide range of textile and styling projects.
Why we like Minnie-Mae: We love her clever mix of London’s multi-cultural references to create new patterns that pulsate with the city’s energy.

I’m a London-based textile designer and I was born and live in Hackney, East London where I grew up. I’ve returned to Hackney after graduating in 2011 from Loughborough University School of Art and Design with a BA (Hons) in Printed Textiles: Innovation and Design. Since graduating I interned with, and am currently working for, the Textile designer Cressida Bell; along with working on current textiles projects of my own, visual styling, teaching and costume design work. I’ve also worked alongside British photographer Tom Hunter as a photographic assistant.
