Tallinn Fashion Week starts todayRiina Põldroos

 

Tallinn’s autumn fashion week will get off to a powerful start tonight, when at the Golden Needle gala, the most sought-after prize in Estonian fashion design, the Golden Needle, will be awarded to the designer who has stood out most in the last five years. The Silver Needle will be awarded to a designer who has made a name for themself in the past year. In addition, the audience’s favourite award will be presented tonight, which will be determined as a result of Anne & Stiili’s online voting.

Vilve Unt
Diana Arno

 

This year’s Golden Needle nominees are Liina Stein, Vilve Unt and Diana Arno.

At the gala tonight, Liina Stein will present an autumn-winter collection inspired by French cuisine and life in Paris. 

Vilve Unt will present clothes and knitwear from the fashion brand PROMENADE, and her TAIZAAL collection. Her woven items combine old traditional patterns with modern fashion demands.

Moving away from the grey reality, Diana Arno’s elegant spring-summer collection brings sunny tones.

“We mixed up a real vitamin cocktail that prevents a bad mood and relieves the symptoms of sadness that have started with the autumn grey,” said Arno.

 

Ennos

The nominees for the Silver Needle are Ennos and Hannes Rüütel.

For the third time, the Golden Needle jury will also award the best accessory creator prize, the nominees of which this year are Vivian Vau, Anneli Tammik and Liis Kalda.
