These striking Suvi Koponen photoshoots have flooded through the doors of British Vogue, New York Magazine and Dazed & Confused. The Finland native rose to high levels of fame quickly with her 2005 triumph over the Mallikoulu (Model School) contest.

Koponen began her foray into the world of fashion with Italy's Model Agency Women. The contract eventually led her to runway productions in 2006 and 2007 where she made her exclusive debuts with Prada and Miu Miu. Paul Rowland took special note of her and soon after issued a notorious statement to Miuccia Prada: "I have got a new star for you."

Rowland proved to be well-informed as Koponen would go on to walk for Fendi, Alberta Ferretti and Just Cavalli.
