French elegance meets Nordic simplicity
For Anna Ruohonen the material is the foundation for every single design. The fabrics provide guidance in the process of creation and development of each design. She prefers to use natural materials of noble character, such as silk, linen, wool, mohair and cashmere in her designs. High-quality fabrics combined with simple cuts and fine craftsmanship give garments a sophisticated contemporary look which characterizes all her designs. Her minimalist designs make the pieces timeless and they can be worn season after season.
It all begins with the fabric
When creating new designs, Anna Ruohonen likes to work and shape the material directly on the mannequin instead of sketching on paper. She likes to see how the fabric falls and this makes it possible for the fabric itself to determine the final shape of the new design.
