"My main goal is to create experiences, lasting and memorable feelings; to have and to keep – be it a mind blowing spatial installation or an act of wearing a simple black dress."
Hailed as "the true poetess of clothing," Marit Ilison is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer mixing deep concepts with feelings, sensitivity, and eye-catching form in whatever medium she is currently working at. She has created costumes, site-specific atmospheres, exhibition, and set designs. Being always interested in the relationship between the body and the space, the worldwide pandemic allowed her to smoothly transition from fashion to interior design and successfully establish the spirit in a more spatial experience.
Ilison has been titled a Vogue Talent and Vogue Success Story with her unique fashion collection "Longing For Sleep." She has also been awarded the most prominent Estonian art award, Kristjan Raud Prize, and Young Designer Award SÄSI. Her works have been featured in top international publications like Vogue, The New York Times, and L'Officiel among others. With her latest work in interior design, she is the 1st Dibs' Designer To Watch.
In 2013 Marit Ilison founded Marit Ilison Creative Atelier together with her brother Peeter Ilison. MICA is a passionate creative atelier working with a broad spectrum of creative projects - from small to big, from homes to hotels, from the first vision to the finest final touches.
