Be like the flower, turn your faces to the sun!

Helsinki, 18 degrees

TGIF! This beautiful sunny Friday one of Finland's most well-known interior and clothing brands Marimekko vitalized the most central park of Helsinki, the Esplanade Park, with its summer fashion show. The catwalk was built in the middle of the park so that as many as possible could witness the show!

Marimekko is all about colors, striking designs and originality - that's Marimekko in a nutshell! Unique about this fashion show was that there weren't models showcasing the clothes, but ballet dancers from the Finnish National Opera! Amazing!

All viewers got even giveaways from Marimekko: a book about the company, a bag and a toiletry kit!


This fashion truly put a smile upon my face - a royal start to the summer season!

Are you familiar with Marimekko?

  2. What an exciting event with an explosion of colour and style. Hadn't heard about the brand before I read this post, thanks for sharing. Our temperatures here are quite similar to yours in the day, like 20-18 degrees. But some nights and mornings are really cold, about 2-5 degrees with lots of frost
