Spring 2010 - Alabama Chanin - sustainable, organic fashion

Amidst all the gloomy news about the effects of the global economic crisis on the fashion trade, it was really heartening to see Alabama Chanin making a show on the runways with her collection of sustainable, organic clothing made from cotton grown in the US and hand-crafted by artisans who live and work around Florence, Alabama.

I visited the Alabama Chanin website and they have a very nice collection of clothing, including bridal wear and items for the home. They also run Studio Weekend Workshops for guests.

We've always had small workshops selling fringe fashion....indie and goth, but it would be nice to know that this can be taken to a commercial level globally.
