About the dress designer
Liisa Suvanto (1910–1983) introduced a new look to Marimekko’s fashion wear with her sculptural garments made from hand-knitted woolen fabrics. Suvanto worked at Marimekko from 1960 till 1975 and, especially in the 1970s, she also designed clothes in printed cotton fabrics.

About the print designer
Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi (b. 1930) is a Finnish textile designer. Originally a trained ceramist from the Institute of Industrial Arts, she joined Marimekko in 1953 to design clothing and printed fabrics. Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi had a significant impact on the development of Marimekko’s original fashion line. Upon their release, her designs were often considered avant-garde but later turned into genuine Marimekko classics. Eskolin-Nurmesniemi worked for Marimekko until 1960.
