It‘s finally here! After being very disappointed and sad about its absence, it‘s time for us to welcome back Reykjavík Fashion Festival!
This year RFF is a bit different, and especially close to our hearts here at Nordic Style Magazine, as our very own Sigrún Ásta Jörgensen is project manager for this much-anticipated event – themed “ROK“ (Icelandic: ´strong wind´).
ROK is something us Icelanders recognize all too well, as the rough and ever-changing windy climate has always played a fundamental part in shaping our character as a nation. Our exposure to these often harsh conditions has compelled us to have a profound respect for, and a close relationship with, nature.
The organizers of RFF this year are opening the much-needed conversation about harmony between people and nature and underlining the necessity of sustainability within our ever expanding market of consumption.
“Evolved in the unique environment around us.
We dedicate ourselves to represent our Icelandic heritage.
Inspired by raw elements.
Shaped by natural forces.
Conscious of our surroundings.“
