Graduate of London’s famous Central St Martins School of Art & Design, Mimi Forrest’s work has received critical acclaim. Shortlisted for several awards, her work is defined by a curiosity and love of new places teamed with the traces, tears, peels, layers and colours of fragmented manner.
Mimi Forrest recently graduated with BA (Hons) Textile Design from London’s Central St Martins School of Art and Design and she has already become one of textile design’s leading new talents, lately holding a solo exhibition at Copenhagen’s Karin Olesen Gallery. Her work has been recognised in theAmy Winehouse X Fred Perry competition, nominated for Textprint in Paris and with a residency at the Designology Studio at the London Transport Museum.
Mimi’s work is distinct, its rips and tears revealing new layers of strong graphical motifs and typographyfor a look that is powerful and rooted in the surrounds of everyday urban life. In her designs for FLOOR_STORY, Mimi has captured this unique aesthetic in two bold designs that bring an element of the unexpected.
