Bold and playful Finnish brands are authentic and stand out even from the very fashionable Scandinavian family.

Unique design from Finland serves the mindset of individualists who want to stand out from the crowd. Finnish designers usually approach the shape and style of products with simple, clean and pure lines but often also with a hint of humor. Design inspired by pure Finnish nature and the accessibility to locally produced, recycled and sustainable materials are also key ingredients for Finnish design.

Finnish fashion is catching eyes of industry professionals, media, and celebrities. During 2017, Finnish fashion brands have been spotted in high-profile international fashion magazines, such as the Italian Vogue, the Chinese Elle and the Korean Harper’s Bazaar. Furthermore, superstars like Lady Gaga and Rihanna have been seen wearing Finnish fashion.
