Turunen has attracted a lot of international attention for her work, which is characteristically rich in detail, often incorporating innovative constructions that blur the line between costume and set design.
She has collaborated with Tero Saarinen since 2000. Turunen has designed costumes for many of TSC’s key productions, such as HUNT (2002), Borrowed Light (2004) and Kullervo (TSC with the Finnish National Opera and Ballet, 2015).
Turunen has also worked with Jorma Uotinen, Susanna Leinonen, Kenneth Kvarnström and Jo Strømgren, and designed costumes for Nederlands Dans Theater, the Lyon Opéra Ballet, the Royal Danish Ballet, Grand Théâtre de Genève, as well as the Operas of Malmö and Gothenburg. In 2007, she was in charge of costume design for The Eurovision Song Contest. At her design studio Ateljee Hurma, she also makes costumes for individual artists, as well as evening dresses. www.hurma.fi
