I’m a designer, artist and a maker living and working in Helsinki, Finland. I work in the field of Fashion Design. Currently I have created a brim hat brand, éN Hats, which hats are made in a sustainable way in my Helsinki Studio.
My creations have always been a combination of design and art in a wearable form. Clothing collections for women have colorful appearance while unisex collections contemporary aesthetics. When creating shoe collections I focus on minimalistic yet sculptural, detailed designs while clutch bag collections are dreamy and whimsical creations.
I have been showing my collections at high-end fashion trade shows in Paris, Milan, Tokyo and Copenhagen. I have been awarded Fashion Awards in Denmark and in Finland.
Fashion concept stores, lifestyle boutiques and department stores have been carrying my collections worldwide. My designs and interviews have been featured in printed magazines like Monocle, 360°, Marie Claire Japan, InRed and Shenken Shimbun and in Harper’s Bazaar China, Marie Claire, GQ, Vogue, and Esquire digital magazines.
When designing éN hats I focus on a distinctly modern, sustainable way of making hats. They come in their pure form, based on my hand-sculptured hat blocks which gives the hat it’s boldly minimalistic look. https://enhats.com/
Straw hats has a same minimalistic aesthetics as felts: they come in monochromatic colour but the surface of the chosen materials are rich and interesting. Some reflects a beautiful shadow to the face and some gives total shade from the sun.
