DESIGNER | Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi

Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi has had a lasting impact on Marimekko’s clothing design, patterns and colours. She worked at Marimekko from 1953 to 1960.
With her architectonic, clean-cut clothes, Vuokko shook up the dress codes and conventions of the 1950s. In her fabric designs, such as Piccolo, she achieved a never-before-seen sophistication in colour combinations and cleverly used overlapping colours during the printing process – a feature that has become a staple in Marimekko’s design language, used also by today’s Marimekko designers.
