New talents from Aalto University at Hirameki
The Aalto University School of Art & Design stages a fashion show at Hirameki presenting the school's 10 most promising fashion students with their collections. Some of these future fashion designers have already cut their teeth in the industry assisting at international fashion houses including Haider Ackermann, Bless, Stephan Schneider and Bernhard Willhelm. In addition to a fresh young view on contemporary fashion, the student collections also give a glimpse of the endless possibilities that the Aalto University's studios can offer for exploring new ways to create printed and woven textiles and knitwear.

Elina Peltonen & Alisa Närvänen
Tomorrow at home - 40 hours exhibition shows the work of young design students from the Aalto University School of Art and Design, done in 40 hours. The idea behind the exhibition is to use one material, one method, one machine and 40 hours to design and make the most essential things we need. The chairs to support and comfort our body, tableware to contain the things we need and desire and the cloths we protect and embellish our body.
It is an intensive exercise of design, as an intelligent and sensitive use of limited recourses, raw materials, energy, space and time. It is an encounter between hard facts of life and fresh ideas, visions and dreams in design.
