Squint is a Scottish ready-to-wear clothing brand designed and manufactured in house in Melbourne by Ellie Vallely.
Founded by Ellie in 2016 after graduating from Brighton University, Squint strives to create concept based functional clothing. The brand focuses on play, naivety of shape, colour and textile manipulation.
Ellie spent 6 months interning in Melbourne Australia at homegrown brand Dress Up and was shortlisted in the 2016 Creative Edinburgh Awards, both of which drove her to set up her own brand. In 2017 Squint won Online Newcomer at The Herald Fashion Awards and was selected as part of the Fashion Foundry’s 2017/18 Emerging Designers programme. In 2022 Squint was awarded the Frankie Good Stuff Awards for the Fashion category.
