The world is treasured with amazing undiscovered stories...
Every season StoryDress designer Suzan Meijer travels through a country to capture its story; its charming authenticity and its forgotten craftsmanship. Curious and passionate, she travels the world armed with her camera and sketchbook. She travels from Vietnam to Venice and from Marrakech to Milan always seeking out hidden treasures and stories to tell. Suzan photographs the iconic places but is also always on the look out for the hidden and forgotten treasures. She visits tribes and little villages to seek out their authentic craftsmanship and ancient stories. She combines this traditional heritage with new technological developments and techniques to create truly unique pieces with their own special story.
StoryDress works together with local ateliers to produce all the elements of the garment in a fair and positive way. This leads to a storytelling collection that takes you on a magical journey throughout the world.
