How’s the typical working day of a fashion designer in Helsinki? Where do Finnish designers get their inspiration? Answers are published in Helsinki FRESH: 25 Young Creatives book which presents you the top 25 designers working for the fashion industry in Finland.
Here are some sneak peeks from the book:
Katri Niskanen: ”I love what I do and especially the moments when I see women feeling beautiful and confident in my designs.”
Emilia Tapprest: “There is this one tiny beach in Helsinki where I go every 1st of May to swim in the sea for the first time of the year. In Finland we call this “getting rid of once’s winter-fur”. Usually there is still ice here and there and just before the darkness everything is blue-shaded, silent and beautiful, despite the austere scenery.”
Naoto Niidome: ”When I was little bit younger I easily worked 16 hours a day, now much less.”
Ilja Karsikas: “Our studio is as cool as the Kallio district, often a bit dirty but really unique; not too trendy, but cosy, friendly and warm – except in winter time when the heating system is not working properly.”
