Warm late afternoon’s August sun made all colors shine in this hippie style photoshoot.

I made this outfit inspired by this summer’s trends, boho chic, fringes and bell button jeans. Photos are shot in Botanical Garden in Kaisaniemi, Helsinki. Sun made all colors to shine, but shadow areas looked dark. Sunrays created happy shiny hippie world to the shades of the trees.

Muotiratikka Fashion Show was held at Kaiku and Kuistinen in Kallio, Helsinki in 5th of August after three days of Fashion Tram rides around the city.

This year was second year when Fashion Tram was arranged. The idea of Fashion Tram is that free tram takes people around the city to the local fashion stores. DJs and artists play music during the tram rides. In addition to fashion stores and designers Fashion Tram had some artists and restaurants among in the event. Fashion Tram rode from 3th to 5th of August and “the last stop” was fashion show, pop up store and party at Kaiku, Kuistinen and Stidilä in Kallio.

For Fashion Tram has been made excellent videos, where you can get good look for the stores and products even if you don’t understand Finnish. I recommend to watch them in Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrKg3n7NSh6rnssmVJFYrEw

Pop Up Store

Fashion Tram had pop up store in 5th of August next to Kaiku in Stidilä. There was also works from artists, who participated to Fashion Tram, like neon color “Ukkeli” paintings from Teemu Keisteri. I wasn’t seen before any Sulokas handbags, what made the biggest impression to me of all designs seen in Fashion Tram. Designer Sini Tanninen is also making shoes and accessories with great professionalism. If Sulokas isn’t familiar yet, take a look now!

About Photos

I apologize the quality of my photos. I was very disappointed to the photos I got this time, even if I have nearly always problem with the light intensity of the basic lens, what is only one I have. Better lens is one item on top on my purchase list, what I would buy if I would have extra money. Anyway, you can check in a sense of documentation all photos I took from the show here:

Mirror Signs

 

graphic_2_800

These signs are made from mirror pieces just for fun.

This small project was inspired free by “trash stuff”. Signs are made of Ikea’s racks, what former inhabitant had left to this flat. I painted them black with the remains of one paint I had. Mirror pieces are from the mirror, what I dived from the bin and smashed.

Size of both sign: 79 x 9,5cm
