I have told you this hundred times, but I never get bored with saying it.
I love my readers!
During the almost three year long period that I have been writing this blog, communicating with you has been my dearest
waste of time hobby. Along this road I have gotten so much from and through this blog that my words can’t describe. I have gotten beautiful gifts, friends and courage to reach for my dreams.
As you know I now study fashion for the second year (though I changed the school) and I truly think that is the biggest gift you people have given to me. Before I started writing this blog I thought I would end up being a teacher or something equal, sure for some girl that’s a dream job, but for me it never made my heart jump. And slowly during writing this blog I gained the courage to apply for fashion schools. And I truly think I wouldn’t have done it without you!
So in the spirit of Christmas and all things nice and sweet I’m giving you a giveaway!
This is out of my own purse so there’s just a one prize. But it’s the nicest I could think of. As the pictures show you the prize is a cute cappuccino cup and plate by Iittala and designed by Klaus Haapaniemi. But straight to the point. Here come the rules:
About the designer
Klaus Haapaniemi (b. 1970) has had plenty of coverage recently in the Finnish as well as foreign media. His CV of design work is impressive: garment prints for Diesel, Levis, Marimekko, Dolce & Gabbana, Cacharel and Bela’s Dead, a new brand. He has also worked as Creative Director of the Italian fashion house Bantam, published a book entitled ‘Giants’ together with the Finnish writer Rosa Liksom, produced illustrations for the Observer newspaper, shown his work in exhibitions – and done a few other things in between. The international WGSN trend analysis service has dubbed him as one of the most important rising stars in illustration and design.
The international media often refer to Klaus Haapaniemi’s Finnish roots, and even the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, has been mentioned. It is true that his illustrations have references to folklore; but both Slav and Japanese influences also have a strong presence.
