I cant believe that Sonar Reykjavik is over, The organizers have already put the early bird tickets on sale HERE!! Las night was beyond awesome and my main focus was to see Fat Boy Slim and De La Soul, who stopped in mid song to ask the crowd to put their phones down and enjoy the gig – how amazing!! It worked, our need to document EVERYTHING can be scary sometimes. The street style was not disappointing either. Saturday top picks: Thanks to ALL of you who were kind enough to let me document their outfits. I met so many wonderful people and I hope to see you all again next year.
Last night at Sonar Reykjavík was such a blast. I started out by seeing Berndsen then off to Sing Fang and ending dancing like a wild child at Gus Gus and Moderat. I also made some friends along the way and snapped a photo of some of the festival goers. This time around people were dressed a bit more wildly than last night so I am way excited to see what crazy outfits I get to snap tonight. Friday top picks: Tonight is the last and final night, I for one cant wait for the legendary Fat Boy Slim and the 22 year old rapper from Croydon, UK, Nadia Rose. See you there and I hope you all are happy with me snapping some photos of all you cool kids.
Sonar Reykavík is an incredibly impressive festival and I was lucky enough to get to be able to attend. This year the line up is incredible with artists such as De La Soul, Fat Boy Slim, Moderat and Tommy Genesis. I saw Tommy’s gig last night and boy was she cool. She is a young rapper from Canada and spits out oddball lyrics and is totally anti-establishment. She rocked the stage where she had Sunna Ben, from the band Reykjavíkurdætur, providing the DJ beats with such skill. In terms of festival wear, we saw a lot of multicolored hair and flashy shoes. The laid back attitude and hoodie fashion definitely stood out. My Look: I forgot to take a picture of my look for you last night but the one below was taken earlier in the day. I was sporting pink hair, black hoodie and black & white sneakers. I will try and remember to take a photo tonight. Thursday top picks: See you guys tonight for round two!! And if I come up to you at a concert I hope you are willing to let me take a picture of you and to show me your favorite piece!

Tomorrow is going to be a big day for me, Im going to do a drastic change to my hair. The color I am going for has been seen all over Instagram and New York Fashion week as well as on stars such as Georgia May Jagger, Sienna Miller, Lady Gaga and miss Kylie Jenner. I usually stick to my own hair color but I am ready to try something new. Here are my inspo pics!!!
Reykjavík Fashion Festival (RFF) will be held next month and we at Reykjavík Fashion & Design are way too excited about it. Yesterday RFF revealed the designers that will be showcasing this year. Anita Hirlekar Anita Hirlekar is without a doubt one of the most exciting Icelandic fashion designers to emerge in recent years. With a keen eye for textiles, Anita Hirlekar harnesses an original vision and an extraordinary sense for fashion. Her garments pulsate with energy and they bare graphics that seem like woolen fireworks flowing throughout the silhouette of each piece. We did an interview with Anita in our next issue and we are simply in awe of what she has accomplished working with amazing design houses such as Dior And Furstenberg. ÝR Ýr Þrastadóttir is one of the most talented designers in our opinion and we at RFD have been lucky enough to have worked with her on various projects in the past. Ýr was selected out of her graduating class to participate on behalf of Iceland in Designers Nest( and international platform for Nordic design graduates) during Copenhagen Fashion Week in 2011 and has participated at Reykjavík Fashion Festival numerous times. Her designs have received rave reviews so we are incredibly excited to see what she has in store for us next. Cintamani Cintamani is an Icelandic outdoors label that has been around for over 20 years developing and designing outerwear clothing, suitable for the Icelandic weather. They are known for having a fashionable take on their designs and are now launching a brand new line at RFF designed by their brand new creative team. The label has participated at RFF before or in 2014 and are now back this year. They are known for using vibrant colors, inspired by nature. Inklaw Inklaw Clothing was…
Animal testing is an ugly thing and certainly a dark side of the beauty industry. The European Union put up a ban in 2013 on products that have been tested on animals. This however did not stop huge brands finding various loopholes in the system and we are still might be consuming products that are being tested on animals in one way or another during the development. We as consumers can certainly do something to help, there are so many quality brands out there that are completely cruelty free. We have put together some of our favourite CF brands and where to get them.
