The more we venture away from our old surroundings the more important they become to us. That’s the underlying theme I felt Steinunn’s presentation last Wednesday followed.
What was interesting to see was her use of different types of fabric to “pay tribute” to her cultural heritage. Her use of the “global” to create the “local”. The culture of the thread.
Her words on the media in Iceland covering fashion were also very interesting. It appears that Iceland still hasn’t produced an article on fashion that has the ability to blow Steinunn’s mind. Could it be that Ásdís was right? That without that further education our vision will forever be limited?
