Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi (b. 1930) has had a lasting impact on Marimekko's clothing design, patterns and colors. With her architectonic, clean-cut clothes, she shook up the dress codes and conventions of the 1950s and helped liberate women.
In her fabric designs, she achieved a never-before-seen sophistication in color combinations by overlapping colors during the printing process. This color overlap in print patterns has become Marimekko's signature style, which is also used by contemporary Marimekko designers.
Vuokko worked at Marimekko from 1953 to 1960.
