FASHION & design

Helsinki is the perfect place for purchasing design and discovering new fashion and design culture. The city’s Design District, for example, right in the heart of Helsinki city centre, contains 25 streets and more than 200 shops, boutiques and art galleries. You can easily spend a day strolling around the district, visiting all the shops – which offer you everything from fashion to interior design and jewellery, as well as giving you the chance to browse unique creations by young local designers and well-established Finnish brands.

Outside the central Design District, there are also countless stores and larger shopping centres packed full of sought-after Finnish design and international brands.
