This is where the herstory of Minna Parikka brand started. Minna had designed a collection of feminine shoes that were leaning towards vintage and the new coming of burlesque at that time. Soft pastels, wings, hearts and gingerbread edges paved the future for brand creating a DNA that can be seen throughout the lifespan of the brand.

’The first collection was filled with all the dreamy shoes that I could not find in the shops at that time. I wanted to create my own universe of beauty.’
