Interviewing Paloni designers:
Emmi Korhonen & Minna Rytkönen / POGOSTICK Failure
Time: Thursday September 29th, 2011, from 5pm to 7pm.
Place: Paloni, Eerikinkatu 7, Helsinki
How does it feel to set up your own ecological fashion label, plan and tinker, succeed and fail, find the first resellers, and then become accepted to present your collection at the London street fashion fair Margin? These stories are rarely heard in Finland, but now such a story will be told to us by the women behind the label POGOSTICK failure – Emmi Korhonen and Minna Rytkönen from Kuopio. They will also showcase the most interesting pieces from their Spring/Summer 2012 collection – the same collection they debuted with in London last summer, and which will be presented to the professionals of the Finnish fashion scene on the next day, September 30th in Helsinki.
Please note: The interview will be held in Finnish.
The event is free of charge. Pre-registrations required at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 27th, 2011. There is space for the 20 first enrolled participants. Welcome!
