Reflecting Marimekko’s inclusive approach to design, the fashion show will be organized in an open-for-all format. In its home city Helsinki, Marimekko has for more than 30 years had a tradition of arranging annual, inclusive public fashion shows. The concept extends now to Copenhagen for the first time. The Spring/Summer 2024 collection will be presented by a cast including a mix of models as well as friends of the brand from different creative fields. As a result, the diversity and positive energy that Marimekko’s community represents is visible on the stage.    

“The year 2024 will mark the 60th anniversary of the Unikko print by Maija Isola. Unikko is not only Marimekko’s most celebrated print but one of the most recognized print designs in the world. Unikko is a symbol of joy and creativity and over the years it has become synonymous with Marimekko’s design language. Organizing the fashion show in an open-for-all format and having the collection presented by members of our community truly emphasizes our mission to bring joy to the everyday lives of people,” says Rebekka Bay, Creative Director at Marimekko.
