Maria Julkunen has – by her own admission – been a designer/dressmaker/seamstress/fibre artist for the past 20 odd years and currently on the Nelson Saturday Market.
Studied at Kuopion Muotoiluakatemia – Kuopio Academy of Design (which is closer to Russia than it is to Helsinki…) and makes high class kit for well-heeled females.
Meg extols her virtues (and if *anyone* knows fabric, it’s Meg. Believe me.) so she must be pretty good.
I’m expecting to go into sticker-shock any day now.
Clothes look very well ..er.. finnished, though…
