ANNA RUOHONEN IS THE LATEST KAJ FRANCK DESIGN PRIZE WINNER!
Clothing designer Anna Ruohonen, currently residing in Paris, has been selected as the recipient of the Kaj Franck Design Prize of 2017. The prize jury specifically acknowledged Ruohonen's international success and her courage in reforming fashion business. Anna Ruohonen Paris is a made-to-measure collection where the garments are made only by demand and according to the measurements of a customer. The heart of the collection is the Black Classics selection which remains almost unchanging and which is seasonally complemented with new items and colours. The production is ecological as unnecessary garments are not made and classics are available year after year. The exhibition illustrating Anna Ruohonen's oeuvre and work is open at Design Museum Gallery in Helsinki until mid-January.
