After graduating from NCAD in 2016, Studio Minti founder Laura Egan launched into her fashion career, heading straight to Paris to intern with one of the worlds most renowned fashion houses. She worked her way up as a fashion designer in two more luxury brands, showcasing her collections in London and Paris Fashion Week. In April 2020 when Covid hit, it led to two big changes for Laura – she moved home from London to Dublin and Studio Minti was born!
During her time in London, Laura met Emily Gubbay a fellow fashion designer and sustainability enthusiast. French born and living in London, having worked across luxury and contemporary brands in both cities, Emily had the same burning passion to change the industry they worked together in. It wasn’t long before a beautiful friendship blossomed and the pair began making plans about how they could combine their passion for preloved fashion, sustainability and making a positive change in the industry. Emily joined Studio Minti as co-founder and the dream team was established!
We know most sustainable way to shop for clothes is preloved, so we give the fabulous clothes that are already in the world the longest life they can have. We offer a stunning selection of hand-picked preloved clothes and a tailor made upcycling/re-design service where with a little bit of Minti magic your old dresses can become new skirts and tops!
A preloved shop / studio, Studio Minti extends the life of the world’s already existing wardrobe! Laura and Emily’s goal is to make the fashion industry a friendlier, greener and more supportive place.
