Hello. I'm Suzie, a freelance textile, paper and jewellery designer based in Melbourne,

Inspired by my grandmother's work as a seamstress for the theatre during the 30's and 40's, I began creating at an early age and this eventually lead to my studying Studio Textiles - Design & Production at RMIT now over 10 years ago!

Being ever inquisitive, I have in recent times also taught myself various paper craft and jewellery making techniques in my quest to create complimentary pieces to my other creations, which accounts for the unusual diversity in my work.

Since then my love of all things vintage and retro has grown as well my passion to create. After many years of sampling various local markets and retail outlets with my creations, Minky Minx Design Studio was officially founded in 2006 and our boutique label Minky Minx was born. 

Today Minky Minx Design Studio is a true treasure trove of boutique, vintage inspired accessories and gifts, individually handmade in my home studio. Combining the olde world charm of yesterday with all the colour and freedom of expression of today, each piece handcrafted with care. The simple joy of creating something by hand in a non-production line fashion takes me back to the days when virtually everything was handcrafted with care.

To see my current collection, please visit one of my online stores or find a stockist near you.
