I had the pleasure of traveling in Dallas Tuesday with the Senior Director of Wholesale for Marimekko North America. She was telling me so many things about Marimekko that I did not know. I thought I would share a few of the fun facts with you.
For example – in 2008, Manolo Blahnick made an Exclusive Limited Edition shoe in the Uniko Red poppy pattern – These are fantastic!
Carrie Bradshaw was pictured wearing a Marimekko bikini and later a dress in Sex and the City. Loved that show!
The Uniko poppy pattern is Marimekko's most famous design; it was designed by Majja Isola in 1964.
Did you know that Jaqueline Kennedy wore a Marimekko dress on the front cover of Sports Illustrated in 1960? I had no idea. This was one of my favorite fun facts of the day.

I hope you liked some of the fun facts I shared on the Marimekko brand and the famous design Unikko.
