Those Crazy Finnish Kids

The other day I stumbled on a web site that I thought might be of interest to The Fashion Blog readers (i.e. Megs and myself). It's called Hel Looks, and it's centered on the street fashions in Helsinki, Finland. Started in July 2005 by Liisa Jokinen and Sampo Karjalainen, the project is aimed at documenting Finnish fashion and encouraging people to dress more invidually and create their own styles.

I thought this was a really cool idea, and it's always fun to see how people dress in other countries. (By the way, we don't really have permission to use this picture - actually the site expressly says not to use the pictures - so don't tell those Finnish girls. They could probably take us.)
