Kirsti Raekallio - Fashion Designer
The base for my designs has always been the relationship between the materials, colours and shapes.To get the correct shape and perfect fit for my products, I only use quality materials. The products need to have simple, clear lines and they need to be modern and suitable for this moment.
My inspiration comes from my drawings, photographing, movies and travelling around the world. I especially enjoy travelling to Japan which, as a country and for its culture, is very inspirational. I have worked in different organizations and countries. My collection won the “Kultainen Vaatepuu” in 1996. I feel like I am a hunter when it comes to trends, that is one quality you need to have while working as a fashion designer.
