About

TEIJA label is a study of practical utility that juxtaposes couture and urban daywear creating a unique subversive aesthetic.

The Nordic spirit of refined everyday influences the designs in the use of highly specialised, mostly cotton, fabrics from Europe and Japan together with cutting edge craftsmanship. This Finnish minimalism creates space for the more advanced, carefully measured silhouette and cut that seeks to redefine contemporary fashion.

The looks are developed with traditional techniques yet with modern urban edge which shows in the engineered outer and internal structure. Thus creating everyday pieces of distinct quality and feel.

Teija Eilola is a graduate of RCA where she acquired skills in traditional tailoring and atelier approach to design. Before launching the line in 2012 at the Final of Fashion Fringe, Teija spent some time being mentored by Christopher Bailey at Burberry head office.

She has previously worked as joint head of design at an international brand, designer at Michiko Koshino Yen jeans label and consultant for other brands.
