Lady Finland - Suomi-neito on nyt aikuinen rouva.

Suomi-neito on nyt aikuinen rouva. The Finnish maiden is now a grown-up lady. She’s older; richer; has developed a strong taste and never the less… She’s very, very independent.

The idea was originally to portray my friend and rope artist Tinttu Henttonen, whose roots are in Lapland. It became a modernized version of the old Finnish symbolical character.

The dress is based on Munsala’s national costume.
The custom corset is made by Tiina Riikala.

The Vuokko long blue dress is a vintage model from the 60’s.

The Lapland drum and the jewelry are handmade by Tinttu and the reindeer skin is from Lapland as well.
