DesignMarch started out as a small grassroot event but has now flourished into a full on design fair attracting 35 thousand visitors each year.

The 2014 DesignMarch opened yesterday at Harpa concert & conference hall with an event called Design Talks, a day of lectures held by internationally acclaimed designers as well as local ones.

Stephen West, a knitting designer based in Amsterdam, is one of many guests from abroad at DesignMarch. His website is here http://www.westknits.com

Stephen met those lovely ladies at Skólavörðustígur street downtown Reykjavík where much of DesignMarch's program is taking place.
