The finale to New York Fashion week was Finnish fashion label IVANAhelsinki. This is the first time that designer Paola Ivana Suhonen has shown her line at NY fashion week. The theme of the show was “Where the f*ck is my sailor” so it’s no surprise that a nautical theme would follow. IVANAhelsinki showcased lots of cotton mini dresses with anchors, sailors ropes and stripes.
This was my first time sitting front row so I decided to capture some video. Take a look!
The brand was originally conceived to be an art project so it’s no surprise that all prints are unique and original, designed by Paoloa Ivava Suhonen. This was certainly a breath of fresh air from all of the neutral tones that we’ve seen walk down the runway at fashion week. There was a keen attention to detail with hand printed dresses, rope embroidery and bold prints.
