VIDEO: Nordic Slow Fashion

After traveling throughout Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands photographing 12 inspiring fashion designers, the curators of the 3rd Nordic Fashion Biennale, Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer shared a story of the roots of Nordic creativity in “The Weather Diaries”. The 20-minute art film is stunningly beautiful.

“The Weather Diaries” exhibition is a prolific collaboration between some of the most gifted designers of the West Nordic Islands and Cooper & Gorfer. It is unique in its symbiosis of installation and narrative photographic imagery, taking you deep into the ingenuity of these three island nations where common is the hug of isolation. Aesthetic and metaphorical, it deflects the conventional rhetoric of fashion. Instead of seasonal trends, it explores the inspiration of creative minds, probes links to cultural identity, and scrutinizes the impact of the inescapable physicality of nature and weather.
