Helsinki second hand shoppers have probably come across this dress frequently as it has been in Fida shop windows for the past month. I made it for the cover shoot of my Trashion book and it got loads of attention at the President´s Ball in December when I made a similar one for Laura Birn. Fida asked Meri, Winner of Finnish Next Top Model 2012, to pose for them in their in-store advertising campaign. She makes it look amazing. I´m very happy they chose my leather dress to be in it. It is made from eight 80´s mens leather jackets, courtesy of Fida.
Fida is opening a new shop in Helsinki centre next Monday (7.1.). It will be located just a block from Stockmann at Lönrotinkatu 4. Shop is open 9-19. Welcome!
