Rintala’s luxurious and flamboyant evening dresses are well-known from the Presidential Independence Day reception. He is, however, also an industrial designer of fashion and interior design. His sensitive and at the same time strong touch is visible in his fashion creations, as well as in interior design and paintings.

The exhibition at the Didrichsen Art Museum aims to expose Rintala’s work in a new context and establish a dialogue between fashion and art.
