Nordic Fashion Biennale

A symphony for the eye, nurture for the mind and inspiration for the future; The Nordic House, Iceland, is proud to announce that in 19.03-05.04 2009 we will be hosting Nordic Fashion Biennale. This is the first time an event like this is being held and this year we are focusing on fashion and jewelry from the vest-Nordic countries: Faroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland.

This year’s main event is “In front of Creativity” a design exhibition portraying the cream of vest-Nordic fashion selected by the curator Matthias Wagner K. His selection shows how influential nature is for vest-Nordic designers. This can be seen in use of material, colors and form.

The highlight of Nordic Fashion Biennale is the Icelandic Design Days. Then the Nordic House will be filled with Icelandic fashion design, showrooms and parties.

Other events include The Fashion Conscience: A conference on sustainability and the fashion industry, inspiring talks from successful Nordic designers such as Nickie Isaksen from Greenland, Barbara i Gongini from Faroe Islands, Steinunn from Iceland and GudrunogGudrun from Faroe Islands, seminar about future cooperation between vest-Nordic fashion designers. Nordic Street Style photo exhibition will be at the Social-bar where other events like talks and Fashion-Cinema will also take place.

In front of creativity, Nordic Fashion Biennale, is a forum for professionals, a cultural festival for city-dwellers and visitors. This is the place for inspiration and critical thinking.

The Nordic Fashion Biennale website is now open and will be updated regularly with media material as well as information about the event and speakers. Visit us at:
