Reykjavík Fashion Festival
Established in 2009, Reykjavik Fashion Festival has proven itself as the main platform for the always daring and talented Icelandic fashion designers. In recent years, the creative industries in Iceland have been flourishing. The local market has become a melting pot of exciting new creative enterprises, with individuals seeking to expand their businesses overseas. However despite this desire, these businesses have often been unable to fulfill their potential as a result of limited marketing budgets and the lack of a common creative vehicle. Reykjavik Fashion Festival seeks to provide the opportunity to channel Iceland’s creative energy into a single event, both for the local Icelandic audience as well as an international audience.
The main goal of Reykjavik Fashion Festival is to market Icelandic fashion design and introduce the development and possible opportunities in the Icelandic fashion industry. Media from around the world, fashion bloggers and key people in the fashion industry are invited to experience this unique festival – and of course, Reykjavik Fashion Festival also welcomes all fashion enthusiasts to discover Icelandic fashion culture.
United by a common passion for Iceland and it’s unique take on fashion, design and music, Iceland’s foremost creative business leaders seek to champion the talent that makes the country so unique. Reykjavik Fashion Festival will see an exciting mixture of fashion, design and music at venues around the city. The fifth annual Reykjavik Fashion Festival will take place in March 2014.
