YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2024-05-31 17:54:54 – Finland

Hyères-awarded designer Sofia Ilmonen has launched her third joint collection with Spinnova, featuring modular outfits made from SPINNOVA® fibre fabrics. The collection, inspired by the corset, is being showcased at Fashion in Helsinki, highlighting rising Finnish fashion talents.

The new collection combines SPINNOVA® fibre and cotton with lighter cotton poplin and silk organza, creating voluminous, layered silhouettes in a variety of fresh colors. It incorporates corset elements like bones and lacing, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics. This collection marks the introduction of trousers into Ilmonen's designs.

“For centuries, the corset was worn due to its positive associations with status and beauty, while also serving as a symbol of oppression. I wanted to design a collection that acknowledges the corset's historical significance while simultaneously challenging its restrictions with my design philosophy. I appreciate working with SPINNOVA® fibre as it creates zero side streams, which is in line with my zero-waste pattern cutting approach,” said Sofia Ilmonen.

“As Sofia is bringing the zero-waste approach to fashion via design, Spinnova is bringing it via sustainable materials. SPINNOVA® fibre creates zero side streams, and its CO2 emissions and water use are minimal. Just like the event’s theme suggests, we believe Spinnova’s technology is one of the technological breakthroughs needed in the industry, and we’re happy to celebrate it with talented designers who share the same values,” said Spinnova CEO Tuomas Oijala.
