The design team Merja Seitsonen and Johanna Vainio explores the unknown borders between fashion and art. Vainio.seitsonen carries an approach to design which can be interpreted as direct, feminist and acknowledging the unplanned as part of the design process. Collections by vainio.seitsonen have been launched at international fashion fairs since 2002. In Finland selected retail shops as well as the flagship store Liike in Helsinki are selling the vainio.seitsonen collection. Moreover, team Vainio-Seitsonen makes illustrations to magazines and design costumes to artistic performances and other events.
