Sigrun: Viking, designer, author and artist

Sigrun Bjork Olafsdottir, designer, artist, and an author was born and brought up in Iceland.  Unlike many young girls who dreamed of fairy princesses and other sugary confections she was at heart a warrior with a fertile imagination built on stories of Vikings and  Nordic Gods, creating a strong, artistic, dynamic woman who has taken that sense of wonder and filled her world with a design aesthetic that would sit as easily with Oden in Valhalla as it does it in urban London.  A fashion statement with a historic twist.

The name Sigrun is one that dates back to Viking times, to one of Odin’s Valkyries to be specific and means “Victory Rune” or “She who conquers”.

Starting out in the accessories market with her leather craft work she has since built a strong reputation for her ethically sourced and recycled materials.

As a designer, you can see the strong historical influences in her work, but a far cry from theatrical the garments are practical and unique enough to make a statement.
