Minna Parikka designs for Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has been awarded double platinum for her album “The Fame Monster” in Helsinki, Finland (14th Oct.).  The double platinum award was designed by an internationally acclaimed Finnish accessory designer Minna Parikka.
The award was very different from the usual: a pair of high heeled platinum pumps with platinum bars as platform soles. For Gaga’s record label Universal Finland it was obvious that the trophy could not be anything else than extraordinary.
“The shoes are from my own collection, painted in platinum colour. I was given only a three day notice but there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Gaga!” Parikka laughs.
