Natalie Chanin


A leader of the sustainable fashion movement, Natalie Chanin is the owner and designer of Alabama Chanin, which produces hand-sewn garments created from organic cotton and repurposed materials. Promoted in conjunction with Georgia Sewn (see this week’s feature article), her lecture “Alabama Chanin: Design, Making and Meaning” is the first in this year’s Global Georgia Initiative speaker series presented by The Willson Center for Humanities and Arts. Local photographer Rinne Allen, who has documented the company’s manufacturing process for multiple publications, will introduce her. Chanin will also lead a sewing workshop in the first-floor atrium of the Lamar Dodd School of Art on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 2 p.m.
