“Each week a selected guest shared their story with us in a personal interview and accompanying portrait. These stories have culminated into a limited edition series of silk screened T-shirt prints by Anne Britt, graduating student from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). The T-shirt is an icon that has become ensconced in pop culture as a medium for wearable art and a soapbox for self-proclamation. Long before social media, it stood as an off-line profile page to express your likes and dislikes, your criticisms and comments to the world.”
Spinnin’ Yarns presents stories by a wide range of people — from a 89-years old WWII survivor to a young aspiring model, from a tattoo artist to a famous national wrestling champion. The exhibition is on in the recently opened SkyLounge on Amsterdam’s Mint Hotel, which is a fantastic place to visit anyway because of its impressive panoramic views overlooking the cityscape.
