Natalie Chanin Introduced Her New Line at Fashion Weekcomments (2) March 5th, 2009
I blogged about Natalie Chanin's book, The Alabama Stitch Book, months ago. I was mesmerized by the beautiful details in her garments, which were mostly made from repurposed knits. In case you missed it (I almost did), she debuted her new collection, titled Songbirds, at Fashion Week the last week of February. Check out all fashion and what was going on behind the scenes at thedailygreen.com. I love when handcraft makes it to the runway...it's very inspiring!! (It gives little designers like me something to strive for!) If you want more, check out Natalie Chanin's website. It's a treasure trove of creative ideas. You can create her beautiful garments yourself. The Alabama Stitch Book is full of projects complete with patterns, a stencil, and instructions. If you want all the stuff you need to make a skirt or top, order one of her kits (sometimes it's nice not to have to scrounge around for fabric). For instant gratification, there's ready-to-wear, too!
