Altogether twenty-six new, spectacular and inspiring collections by Aalto University fashion students were seen on the catwalk in the Näytös19 fashion show on Wednesday, 29 May in Helsinki’s Cable Factory. Twenty-two were graduate collections and four group collections.

The jury was formed this year by fashion professionals:
Francesco Risso, Creative Director, Marni
Laird Borrelli-Persson, Archive Editor, Vogue.com
Miren Arzalluz, Director, Palais Galliera

Azza Yousif, Fashion Editor, Vogue Hommes International

Visions of the prominent young fashion designers are of interest to many fashion professionals, who arrived in Helsinki to follow Näytös19 and Aalto University's Fashion Seminar the day before. The events are part of Fashion in Helsinki, an international forum for professionals to get to know the latest talents and local brands. The aim of the event is to support exports and increase the visibility and attractiveness of Finnish design.

Journalistst Laird Borrelli-Persson, Vogue.com and Azza Yousif, Vogue Hommes, were looking forward to the fashion show. ‘I have high hopes’, said Borrelli-Persson, in regard to the fashion show later that night. ‘I hope to see an inspiring show. I hope the students are creative in a responsible way’, says Yousif, who is specialized in sustainable and responsible fashion.
