We’re thrilled to welcome Marimekko, fabulous Finnish design house renowned for its original prints & colours to Kids & Life Instyle Sydney this February. Based in Helsinki and founded by Armi Ratia, Marimekko paved the way for fashion in the 60’s with their striking bold and bright prints and geometric patterns.
Two designers in particular, Vuokko Nurmesniemi with bold stripes, and Maija Isola with the signature large simple flowered prints, came together to create hundreds of distinctive patterns, establishing Marimekko as a household brand across the world.
At this year’s Sydney event, you’ll find Marimekko showcasing their latest Kids Range, designed to “encourage little ones to play and build entire worlds of their own with colours and patterns. It’s all about mixing and matching – cherishing the creativity that is innate in them and making life a bit more fun, for them and us.”
Plus, take a well-earned break at the Marimekko Kids Café as well – we cannot wait to see this vibrant café come to life with Marimekko’s signature colours and prints. Just a tad excited for this one!
2014 marks a milestone for Marimekko – they’ll be celebrating their 50th Anniversary and we’re excited to celebrate with them at Kids & Life Instyle Sydney, so join us and make sure you visit the Marimekko stand (K352). It’s seriously not to be missed!
