Designer Janice Gobey, an artist originally from South Africa launched Icelandic Blue in Melbourne a year ago.  In her artistic practice, Janice uses fabric and fur as subject matter for her luscious paintings and also builds installations using mostly fur.  So it’s natural that her obsession with fabrics has led to her starting Icelandic Blue.  Janice says,

“Most of our clients are professional women who work and need a wardrobe that gives them the confidence to present to the board, attend a job interview, go out to functions such as weddings, cultural events and of course on a date!  Why should the only choices be shapeless sacks and trackie pants?

We all deserve to look and feel fabulous – this builds your confidence and that of course shines through to everyone you encounter.”
