Today, my new wedding gown collection will be revealed. Roots-collection is my first large collection, of which 3 looks will be revealed already now. I am taking part in the Wedding Dress Designer of the year 2020-award. The competition takes place here: Häät.fi I would be thrilled to get your vote. There are 14 looks in total in my collection, 3 of which are revealed already now. Remaining looks will be revealed gradually every 3rd month leading up to the summer 2021. Be sure to follow my social media channels: Instagram & Facebook to stay updated.
As the name of the collection may suggest, Roots is a part of me. Roots tells my story, a story of my roots. I grew up in Finland. My father is a Swedish Finn. My grandmother lived in the USA for as long, as I can remember. All this has affected my life and I feel that my childhood was largely spent in between the three cultures. Finland is my homeland. The Finnish-Swedish culture is filled with its own old and strong traditions. American culture in its turn is largely about believing in the future, about daring to do things, about being international and very optimistic, which I find very important especially in our times.
The dresses in this collection have been designed for big church weddings, as well as small and intimate weddings at the City Hall. The fabrics of all gowns are of premium quality, which makes them reusable. I have used luxurious silks, and now, for the first time also viscose.
