Fashion Finland — the Finnish organisation promoting and supporting the Finnish fashion industry, business, and fashion culture — awarded prizes for astounding work within fashion at their Fashion Gala Dinner held at the Design Museum on 28 February 2020. The categories were best marketing act award, best environmental act award, best influencer, best fashion experience, and best retailer.

Aalto University received two awards: Ioncell-fibre as best environmental act and Näytös19 as best fashion experience.

Ioncell® is a technology created in Finland that turns used textiles, pulp or even old newspapers into new textile fibres sustainably and without harmful chemicals. Ioncell holds a big promise of changing the textile industry more sustainable in the future.

Näytös is an annual fashion show for students majoring in fashion and the Fashion, Clothing and Textile Design Degree Programme. It has taken its place as the industry’s most eagerly-awaited fashion student event, gathering international recruiters, media and influencers in Helsinki once a year.
