About the Designer


ALLISON QUINNELL is a designer, visionary, artist and founder of Slate Collective.

With over 10 years of experience in the fashion industry, she has successfully merged her passion and interest in the intersection of fashion design and fine art by creating a space where both can co-exist.

Slate Collective is artfully crafted clothing for the modern woman.  It is a thoughtful collection of contemporary classics, punctuated by a limited-edition collaboration with an up-and-coming female artist. These seasonal “artist sessions” are what make this brand unique and what connects the modern woman to original artwork that she can embody.

Slate Collective’s philosophy is grounded in fewer, better pieces—honoring versatility, and celebrating the notion that you can have an original masterpiece hanging in your closet.

Allison’s formal education comes from the University of Minnesota and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She has worked for brands like Target, The North Face and Old Navy.

Slate Collective is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
