Alabama Chanin

Bouquet: Emplume
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." - Helen Keller, (1880-1968) Tuscumbia, Alabama (qoute from AC newsletter)
Alabama Chanin is defintley on my top 10 list of "Obsessions" Mixing fashion, art, old school crafting with modern sustainable design, Alabama Chanin creates pieces that have a simplistic nature, yet so much depth. When I look at an AC piece, such as a simple tank dress, A barrage of thoughts fill my head. Who inspires the designer creating this piece? What music fills their soul? What is this designer trying to say in this creation? Yes this sounds far too deep for a garment, but this is the what Alabama Chanin evokes through their designs. Conscious, creative, delicate, and fierce designs. Check out AC awesome website to see more of their creations, inspiring music, and powerful photography.
