All Is Full Of Love, All Around You

2 Weeks and counting people!!! i can hardly contain myself!

So just to leave you that little bit more excited let me give you some information about the icon that is Bjork.
Over her three-decade career, The Icelandic singer-songwriter has developed an eclectic musical style that draws on a wide range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, experimental, trip hop, dance, classical, and avant-garde styles. She initially became known as the lead singer of the alternative rock band The Sugarcubes, whose 1987 single "Birthday" was a hit on US and UK indie stations and a favorite among music critics. Björk embarked on a solo career in 1993, coming to prominence as a solo artist with with albums such as Debut (1993), Post (1995), and Homogenic (1997), while collaborating with a range of artists and exploring a variety of multimedia projects. Several of her albums have reached the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart, the most recent being her 2015 album Vulnicura. Fashion wise Björk was an early fan of Martin Margiela, Walter Van Beirendonck, and Alexander McQueen, but it was in the noughties that she embarked on artistic collaborations with the fashion industry. The Marjan Pejoski–designed swan dress she wore to the 2001 Academy Awards, following her starring role in Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark, remains her strongest visual statement to date. She worked on album covers and coffee-table books with sleek French design firm M/M (Paris) and fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh. Her most celebrated music video of the period is “Pagan Poetry,” directed by fashion favorite Nick Knight, which was banned from MTV in part for its explicit sexual imagery. Even now this lil lady seems to be defining the decade by going big: big hair, big costumes, big concepts, big museum shows. Her 2011 record, Biophilia, was billed as an “app album,” and was released in conjunction with a series of apps that let you visually explore its songs in depth. Her most recent, Vulnicura, released in January.

What better way to celebrate 30 years of Bjork than with an event fully dedicated to all things Bjorky :P
