Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi graduated as a ceramist in 1952.Then suddenly she was asked to design some fabrics and patterns for Marimekko. When Vuokko started to design the fabrics and patters they changed to new styles of silhouettes. Vuokko created a new artistic style and designed her fabrics and clothes with bold line, bright colors, poppers and zippers, she removed all that was constricting and not necessary, to liberate women to move freely. The clothes were designed to be comfortable and sustainable. After leaving Marimekko she started her own company Vuokko where she devoleped her artistic style that she had begun at Marimekko by simplyfying the colors and patters.
Vuokko's designes like the Jokapoika-shirt that is made from her Piccolo-pattern and Iloinen dress are still sold at Marimekko more that 60 years after being designed. Here at Vuokko all the clothes and patterns are designed by Vuokko in her own unique artistic style.
