Designer Paola Ivana Suhonen created her Ivana Helsinki Collection as her personal art-project and says that now it has become just a way of living.
And with that perspective, it is easy to see why Ivana Helsinki is more than just an apparel line, it is also an artistic expression. Ms. Suhonen is also an artist and filmmaker and she utilizes all of those talents in creating her collection.
The Helsinki born designer creates her collections in an atelier in downtown Helsinki and her knits are all manufactured in Finland, with the hand knits coming from Lapland.
For Ivana Helsinki Spring 2014, Ms. Suhonen opened the show with a film that brought together the clothing that she created with her inspiration, setting the stage for a beautiful Spring Collection.
