Niinikoski bags Newcomer of the Year at Elle Style Awards
May '09
Designer duo Rinne Niinikoski received the Newcomer of the Year award at Finland's first Elle Style Awards for the knitwear they have created for Marimekko's winter 2009/2010 collection.

At the gala, Elle Finland also presented awards to the Fashion Photographer, the Make-up Artist and Hair Stylist, the Stylist, the Best Dresser, the Fashion Collection, and the Ecological Fashion Innovation of the Year.

Piia Rinne and Noora Niinikoski began their collaboration in 2000 while studying for their Master's degree at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. Ever since, the duo has been creating individualistic and interesting clothing inspired by everything from melancholic landscapes to spooky carnivalism.

The impressive and distinctive knits and accessories that Rinne Niinikoski have designed for Marimekko show influences from Marimekko's bold floral prints.
