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.

Zara Loving

I am LOVING Zara at the moment. The store is packed with wonderful treasures. They are absolutely killing it! It is amazing how Zara is always on top of the newest trend and runway styles. Still they keep the prices really good.

Have a lovely day everyone!

Milan Trip

I just got back home from five day trip to Milan with Uni. It is the second time I go visit Milan and it is so beautiful. I had such a great time. The city is so amazing, the buildings alone are breathtaking.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd the food! I have never had such a good food in my life! We always went to these small places, that did not look too fancy, so the price was good but still the food was amazing! You do not get these kind of pizza in UK nor Iceland! MMM… I want to go back.

I just booked my flight to Iceland, I am leaving after only 16 days. So I will make it to Reykjavik Fashion Festival, I am so excited.

 

 

It is Cold and Dark and Wonderful

I am back in Iceland for Christmas. It is very cold and the days are dark but I love it. It is not snowing but I am hoping to see a little bit of snow before I go back to England. These photos are taken at noon in my lovely countryside.

The first thing I did, when I got back home, was to visit one of my favorite shops in Reykjavík, called Aunt Frida. It is a vintage interior shop. It is really small but so outstanding. It is crammed with all kinds of treasures.

The house is really old so when you are walking around, exploring, the floor makes cracking noise and when you are downstairs the ceiling shakes if people are walking above, it kind of feels like the house is falling apart. I actually love that! It increases the whole vintage shopping experience.

I did buy something else, I went to the V&A museum in London few weeks ago, There was a necklace that I have not been able to stop thinking about, so I ordered it online and it looks great. I am really happy with it, so unique.
