Lasipalatsi Design Markets & Fashion Film Festival next week!

Lasipalatsi Design Markets is a sales event at Lasipalatsinaukio in Helsinki that brings together the most interesting fresh designers from around Finland, and this year also a few talents from abroad. The event has already an established reputation. And of course Paloni is there as well!

This year the event is even more special than before, since it has been expanded to also involve a Fashion Film Festival – just how great is that! The festival takes place at Bio Rex, and the films are partly fashion-classics, partly material curated especially for this event by e.g. Paola Suhonen.

Actually our participation at Lasipalatsi Design Markets is quite special, as Paloni is proud to be the first participant ever representing several designers. We wanted to show Helsinki what the rest of Finland has to offer, and chose three labels from outside Helsinki that couldn’t represent themselves at the event. So, at our stand you will find:

– classic women’s clothing and accessories by SIPILÄ (designed and made by Linda Sipilä in Seinäjoki with the help of seamstress Riitta Mäki-Jouppi)

Linda Sipilä Huivi

SIPILÄ soy bean scarf 79€, SIPILÄ tunic with pockets 159€. Picture by SIPILÄ.
