Fashion in Seven Acts – from emerging Swedish and Finnish designers

LOOKING to the future of Nordic fashion, Fashion in Seven Acts exhibits the work of Swedish and Finnish young creatives. From modern interpretations of traditional craft based approaches to silhouettes based on technical innovations, it’s a broad spectrum covered by students from Stockholm based design schools and Finnish menswear designers Julia Männistö, Rolf Ekroth and Tiia Sirén.

The Finnish delegation deserves a special mention. With looks that were more London than “lagom” – there was a sophisticated edge to the menswear that went above and beyond Scandinavian bread-and-butter minimalism. A particular attention to surface textures and prints as well as thoroughly developed concepts made the menswear collections stand out – the stories were felt – quite literally.
