Reykjavik Fashion and Design are on the Rise

This week gave Reykjavik a chance to showcase Icelandic Design and Fashion and put Iceland on the world stage. In support of these events, we were honored to host a reception for Roxanne Lowitt, guest of honor of the Reykjavik Fashion Festival and world renowned fashion photographer, and Juliet Kinchin, guest of honor of Design March and curator for the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

I have no doubt these events are among the coolest in Iceland and that it won’t be long before Icelandic designers follow the path of Steinunn Sigurð and make a splash on some of the best known runways in the U.S. and Europe. As for Icelandic design, it is as bold as it is unique and judging by the facial expressions of fellow spectators, they enjoyed the festival as much as we did.
