Since I first read about Natalie Chanin and her Project Alabama line in Vogue a few years ago, I have been a fan. I loved how sophisticated women were wearing garments that little old ladies had helped make. Living in nearby Mississippi, where the culture is very similar to that of Alabama’s, I felt like our culture was finally getting some good press. I think the true joy of owning couture is knowing that it was made with love, pride, and attention, not just that it has a high price tag.
Now, Natalie has a new company, called Alabama Chanin, which can be found at www.alabamachanin.com. These pictures are just a sampling of the beauty that can be found on the site. The site already has projects, and with new catagories in the works, it looks like there will be more information to come that will help make this a site worthy of visiting regularly.
