Ivana Helsinki’s Spring / Summer 2014 Collection inspiration is drawn from the film ‘The Bridges of Madison County.’ Designer Paola Suhonen was on a road trip from LA to New York, when she stopped in Madison, Iowa and visited the ‘Madison County’ old wooden bridges. When wooden bridges in Iowa inspire you to create an entire Spring / Summer collection, that’s when you know you’re meant to be a designer. Fashion would be the last thing on my mind. Click through the slideshow to see what trends manifest from wooden bridges. If you’re into it, UNIQLO carries an ivana Helsinki capsule collection, selling in over 1,200 stores worldwide for Fall 2013.

Emily is a New Yorker trapped in a Floridian's body and loves every minute of her big city life. With a major in international business and years of being surrounded by ill-fitting suits and all the wrong shoes, she learned that the importance of fashion needs to be communicated to the world.
