'Minä perhonen' on arvostettu japanilainen muoti-, tekstiili- ja design-brändi. Suunnittelija Akira Minagawa perusti yrityksen vuonna 1995 valmistaakseen vaatteita, jotka eivät menetä viehätystään ajan myötä.

Minagawa pitää Aalto-yliopistossa luennon työstään ​​muodin ja tekstiilien parissa. Minagawa kertoo ”minä perhonen” brändin rakentamisesta ja muotoilufilosofiastaan sekä siitä miten tekstuuri ja kuosit ovat hänen brändinsä tärkeitä osia.

Luento on avoin kaikille Aalto-ARTSin opiskelijoille ja henkilökunnalle sekä muille muotoilun, tekstiilien ja muodin alalla toimiville ammattilaisille sekä kaikille, jotka ovat kiinnostuneita kuosien ja huippumuodin suunnittelusta.

‘minä perhonen’

The name of the label ‘minä perhonen’ has originated from Finnish language, as the designer Minagawa sympathized with Scandinavian culture when he first visited Finland at the age of 19. Minagawa has a strong personal relation with Finland and visits us annually for connecting and collaborating with other designers and brands while promoting his own world-famous fashion and textile brand.

minä means ‘I’ and perhonen is ‘butterfly’ with a wish to make many beautiful designs like those of butterflies’ wings. Our design process begins with sketches, which are made into story-telling textiles. Also, we aspire to develop new materials and techniques, collaborating with many production centers at home and abroad. We create a dress not for a special day but for every ordinary day.”
