Ivana Helsinki is an independent art, fashion and cinema brand, delicately merging Slavic melancholy with pure Scandinavian moods and Americana Vintage with a hint of nostalgia.
“Ivana Helsinki started as my personal art-project; now it’s a way of living. I could easily spend my life as a nomad, raising stories of love and life and going to my road trips – but it is pretty much ok to do cute, straight cotton and woolen dresses for charismatic drummer girls and girl-women with beautiful souls instead. My world is for the ones whom love moonlit fields, pirates, dark forests, crummy motels, champagne states of drunkenness, fragile butterflies, passionate relationships, cowboys and guardian angels. After all, they all are just after a love of their lives, rarely seen peaceful madness; just waiting to see, will he be a rockstar, a motor biker, a gnome, a cosmonaut or a sailor.”
-Paola Ivana Suhonen
