Tanel Veenre awarded with the Golden Needle for VENUS

About Tallinn Fashion Week

Tallinn Fashion Week is an established fashion event in Estonia. It aims to invite the fashion creatives and consumers into a dialogue. Tallinn Fashion Week helps to develop society’s design awareness and appreciation for design and once a year outstanding designers are awarded with the Golden and Silver Needle.

The coveted fashion design award Golden Needle is presented to an outstanding fashion designer or brand for consistency in creation during at least for the last five years. The jury considers quality, functionality, beauty and modernity of the collections.

The awarded series VENUS

With deep gratitude we are happy to share that the winner of the Golden Needle 2019 is Tanel Veenre. With outstanding dedication, Tanel Veenre has proved to be a unique guide in the field on jewellery design. The magical ability to turn dreams and visual stories into something that people can wear daily, has won the hearts of Estonians and people abroad.

Though the jury of the Golden Needle respects deeply the work done in recent years, the collection made specially for the event is equally valued. For Tallinn Fashion Week Tanel Veenre took the courage to create something totally new – a line of silk clothing named VENUS.

“I decided to take a challenge and create a fashion series besides jewellery. As I am not the strongest with cuts I focused on fabrics. So I started to create a series of silk fabrics playing with essential symbols of my brand – scarabs, seahorses, dragonflies, butterflies and of course the new heroes of the Venus series – shells.

All started with watercolors which are the base of each fabric. The aim is to get deep mysterious color combinations where my creatures create constellations.”

The collection consists of 100% silk dresses. The fabrics are designed by Tanel Veenre and produced in the finest printing house in Great Britain to achieve maximum quality. The cuts are simple and therefore give the wearer an airy feeling with maximum comfort. In addition to silk dresses, you will find silk scarves and a fine jewellery line among the VENUS series.
