Design and Fashion Take Center Stage

Today marks the beginning of the Reykjavík Fashion Festival and Design March; both of which will run until Sunday.

The two festivals work in partnership, bringing Icelandic design to the world’s attention—whether worn on the body or not.

Design March offers a series of talks, displays, exhibitions and symposia on all areas of design, from architecture to jewelry and kitchenware to product design. This year’s theme is ‘play away’, with emphasis on the concept of play, in its broadest sense.

DesignMarch is Iceland’s most important annual design festival. Organized for the sixth time this year, it will be the largest and most significant yet, with an expected 100 or so events that will transform the most northerly capital in the world into one big venue for design.

Meanwhile, the Reykjavík Fashion Festival is featuring six bright Icelandic stars of the fashion design world: Another Creation, Eyland, JÖR by Guðmundur Jörundsson, Magnea, Scintilla, and Sigga Maija. There will be six catwalk shows on Friday and Saturday.
