Illustrator Nina Chakrabarti has worked for big names like Mazda and Marks and Spencer, she’s created book covers for authors as illustrious as Margaret Atwood. Her doodles are both fun and beautiful, and sometimes unsettling. (Yes that is a link to Kanye West’s blog!)
She will be be signing copies of her new book, My Wonderful World of Fashion, a drawing and creating book for girls of all ages, in our Amsterdam store on December 11th, from 5pm to 6pm. With drawings to complete and colour in, garments to design and textile patterns to invent, My Wonderful World of Fashion encourages creativity and resourcefulness through Nina Chakrabarti’s beautiful illustrations.
Later that same day, from 7pm to 8pm, Miss Chakrabarti will give a public interview at the American Book Center’s ABC Treehouse in Amsterdam. This event is organised by Premsela, Dutch Platform for Design and Fashion. With this interview Premsela seeks to draw the attention of professionals and the public to the special qualities, passion and inventiveness displayed by non-experts.
