Hi, I am Emiisa, CEO of Zikini

I am glad that you found your way to the Zikini website! I am Emiisa, CEO and designer of Zikini.

 

Your journey as a fashion designer?

My interest in fashion started in early age through drawing and playing with costumes. I used to watch Gossip Girl, Next Top Model- and Project Runway -series which inspired me to start my journey in fashion. And after watching Devil Wears Prada -movie (Ah... the scene where Andy shows up wearing the Chanel boots!) I was destined to start my work in fashion. 

 

 

I followed my sisters steps to a fashion school after graduating from high-school. At first I wasn’t the best sewer but I was a great visionary. I used to model for my schoolmates for their designs. My hard work paid off and got great opportunities to work as an intern in biggest tv shows in Finland. I launched my first collection in 2013, which included business- and formalwear for women and men.

After graduating I have worked in a bridal store and menswear. I have also been designing evening- and bridal gowns, creating costumes for music videos and working as a fashion teacher for children in Helsinki and Bangkok, Thailand.

 

 

Can you describe your style in fashion?

I have always been keen of haute couture and detailed craftsmanship. I have explored different techniques and adapted them in Zikini style. I wanted to create detailed and hand-made bikinis.

 

 

Why Bikinis?

I am born in raised in Finland. So, we didn’t have much of a sun in Summer time. Or heatwaves that we could enjoys being outdoors in swimwear.

I have always been interested in traveling and exploring different cultures. Around four years ago we started to make girls trip to Mediterranean countries. So, I came fanatic to find the best looks for my trips. What could look good in the internet, to feel good on my skin and make that wow effect on others. I tried so many bikinis but couldn’t find something that suit my personality. Then idea of creating something on my own started.
