This is the story of Finland’s most notorious designer, Armi Ratia, and the famous brand Marimekko. The brand was founded in the 1950s and is still one of the most well-known Nordic brands in textile design. With Marimekko, Armi has shaped the lives of many women worldwide since the 1950s with Marimekko’s iconic dresses, interiors and textiles.
Let yourself be inspired by Armi’s philosophy: «There is only one duty – beauty. There is only one reality – dream. There is only one force – love» – and join a world of colours, shapes and fluttering fashion as we follow the life of Armi between the years of 1949 to 1968.
The screening is at Alvar & Maija, Marimekko's flagship in Trondheim since 1972. The evening begins with bubbles and blinis and ends with a discussion with Randi Voll who collaborated with Armi in the 70s. We promise surprises and all guests will receive goodie bags.
