Jenny Hytönen is a Finnish artist and fashion designer based in Paris, France. Her designs are known for their intricate and sensuous structures, which are achieved by utilising traditional, hand-made craftsmanship techniques: knitting and leathercraft combined with new experimental technologies. She regularly draws inspiration from human nature as well as the body and its somatosensory sensibilities.
Her graduate collection won the Näytös Award, awarded by Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture. After her graduation she worked as a knitwear designer at Olivier Theyskens, Paris.
In October 2022, Jenny Hytönen was awarded the Grand Prix du Jury Premiere Vision and the Audience Award 2022 during the 37th International fashion, photography and fashion accessories festival in Hyères, which recognizes future talents in the international fashion industry.
