Näytös 18 | Aalto University Fashion Show

Näytös, the annual fashion show by design students at Aalto University, and one of the most anticipated fashion events in Helsinki, took place last Friday.  22 exceptional collections were presented and audience were treated with skillful and innovative tailoring, playful detailing and genius solutions in using recycled materials.

Four collections were awarded: The Marimekko award went to Eetu Kemppainen and his collection inspired by female pilots; Emma Saarnio gained the Fiskars award to  for the humorous and clever collection; the Diesel award went to Eerika Yli-Rahko, Erika Hirsimäki and Idaliina Friman for their use of material and innovative way of using laser print; Anni Salonen was awarded by the international panel for her desirable, colorful and fun collection.

Young Finnish designers from Aalto university have gained much attention abroad the last years due to notable placing in e.g. one of the most significant design competitions Hyéres. There’s an excited atmosphere around the show and the speculations on which fashion houses might have sent their scouts to spot upcoming talents.

Enjoy the Aalto University fashion collections. Which one inspires you the most?
