Fashion Internship in Iceland !

For the last week I have been doing my placement for Uni. I am working for a fashion designer in Iceland called Jet Korine and it has been wonderful. She has a shop called Gloria on Laugavegur and it is so amazing. The work has been very exciting and I will continue working there for the next 6 weeks. Mostly I have been in the studio sewing but I also had the chance to work in the shop and observe the whole process. The clothing are all natural and sustainable. It is so wonderful to work with these amazing materials! The studio is very small but gorgeous! I have never worked in such inspiring work place! The people I am working for is so creative and inspiring, everyday I am learning something new. Here are some of my photos on Instagram (larainwonderland90)IMG_20130604_154148 IMG_20130604_184832 IMG_20130605_160343 IMG_20130607_130208 IMG_20130607_163822 IMG_20130608_105952 IMG_20130608_110320 IMG_20130608_110551 IMG_20130608_112144 IMG_20130608_114419 IMG_20130608_114507 (1)IMG_20130608_114606IMG_20130608_115009 IMG_20130608_115106 IMG_20130608_115144 IMG_20130608_115309 IMG_20130608_115415 IMG_20130608_115931 IMG_20130608_120541 IMG_20130608_120803


While looking for something dark and mysterious, something Icelandic, I found this amazing video from the Icelandic band “Sólstafir”. This video is exactly what I was looking for, for inspiration! It blew my mind! If you do not like psychedelic metal, I advice you to put on mute, but this song is really amazing too.

Manifesto Design Philosophy

I have a new project in Uni called Manifesto. The idea is to create a design philosophy/manifesto. This is a communication of my approach and ideas about fashion.

Honestly, I am not good with words so I have been struggling on how to present this Manifesto. I have my ideas of what I want it to be, but expressing it on paper is the problem.

I am much more into expressing myself with photos.

Farmers Market

My absolutely favorite show at Reykjavik Fashion Festival was Farmers Market. The Icelandic national vibe of the show was overwhelming, but in a good way. The show started completely dark, all of the sudden you could hear sound of water, or rain, and then it actually started raining, you did not get wet but you could feel the spray of water in the air. At the end of the runway a large live image of “skogar” waterfall came up and the models walked the runway, slowly with live music. The whole show was so inspiring. The clothing were stunning, mostly wool, fur and silks.
