Storysewing by Merel Boers (Miss Blackbirdy)

During the festive month of December the PRINT Gallery has been transformed into the fantasy world of Merel Boers (Miss Blackbirdy).
She graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2006. During her course of study she developed a love for fashion and illustration. We had the pleasure to showcase her work during FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2010.
Merel Boers has already won several prices and in 2010 "Storysewing" was awarded with the Fiep Westendorp illustration prize. This prize gave her the possibility to realise this project.
 Merel Boers brings her sketchbook to life through Storysewing, pen and paper are replaced by needle and thread. The result is stunning. I could not stay long but it was worth it.

You can visit 'Storyseweing' from 9th till 11th of  December from 11.00 to 17.00  in PRINT Gallery, Prinsengracht 628 in Amsterdam.
