Marimekko fans prepare to be dazzled as Australia based clothier, Mackenzie Mode, transforms Marimekko print fabric into beautiful cocktail dresses which literally sent me into a frock-induced frenzy. It’s true that Marimekko fabrics have wowed the world with bold prints and eye-popping colors since the 1950’s but you haven’t seen them quite like this before. Marimekko Unikko, Ruusupuu, Siirtolapuutarha, and Taikamylly prints come alive as structured cocktail and party dresses are expertly sewn from this iconic Finnish fabric. If you’d like to create your own garments using the fabric seen here, visit AlwaysMod.com which carries over 80 Marimekko cotton fabrics including the patterns used by Mackenzie Mode.
