Fin­nish tex­tile and fash­ion house, Marimekko, achieved global promi­nence in the 1960s and ‘70s with its bold screen prints. This show­case dis­plays more than 60 out­fits along­side ex­am­ples of its iconic fab­rics, home­wares, sketches and other mis­cel­lanea from the ar­chives. The name Marimekko comes from ‘Mary dress’, the found­ing de­sign that co­in­cided with women’s lib­er­a­tion and greater free­dom in the fash­ion world.
