Maria Korkeila

Designer, Art director | FASHION AND TEXTILE DESIGN, GRAPHIC DESIGN, PHOTOGRAPHY, FILM, ART DIRECTION

A multidisciplinary creative working with fashion, graphics, textiles, photography and music. After graduating from Aalto University’s fashion design, she has worked to build her own name. Her highly acclaimed collections with R-Collection and Fiskars has been presented in Pitti Uomo and her own In My Room collection took over Helsinki’s Kämp Garden. She has designed merchandise and graphics for Solstice Festival and Post Bar as well as on stage outfits for the singer New Ro.

Whilst she’s not working with fashion, she’s been busy producing music and deejaying. Korkeila’s field of expression is fluid: flowing in, out and in between fashion, music and photography, she proposes a vision that stretches beyond the binary. Following the culture and traditions of punk, deconstruction and DIY, rich textures meet an abundance of colour in a coalescence of deviance and sensuality.
