A new exhibition with Nordic fashion illustrations will open in Tallinn, Estonia today.
“New Nordic Fashion Illustration Vol.2” showcases illustrations from artists with roots in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Estonia and is a follow-up to an earlier exhibition. The first exhibition was held in Tallinn in 2011 and in Helsinki at the Design museum in 2012. The exhibition attracted thousands of visitors but only showed works of eight fashion illustrators from Finland, Sweden and Estonia. This year the illustrators are a total of 21 and also from Norway and Denmark.
Toomas Volkmann, creative director of the exhibition, says: “the display aims to reflect the unique position and colourfulness of that distinctive genre in the modern-day fashion world.”
From Sweden: Cecilia Carlstedt, Stina Persson, Daniel Egnéus, Sara Andreasson and Liselotte Watkins.
From Finland: Laura Laine, Annu Kilpeläinen, Riikka Sormunen and Jarno Kettunen.
From Denmark: Naja Conrad-Hansen, Mia Marie Overgaard, Mads Berg and Lisa Grue.
From Norway: Esra Røise, Natalie Foss, Magnus Voll Mathiassen and Hans Christian Øren
Magnus Voll Mathiassen
From Estonia: Marju Tammik, Anu Samarüütel, Britt Samoson and Kätlin Kaljuvee.
The exhibition will be open until the 27th of September and runs at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design.
