Natalie Chanin, founder and designer of Alabama Chanin, will give a talk tonight at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Chanin's company is an integral part of the burgeoning slow fashion movement. I had the opportunity to help out with the recent teen Design Directions stitching workshop here at the museum that she taught - rather than being at "work", I found myself lulled into a peaceful state as I stiched my own fabric while listening to her kind, insightful words. I can say with certainty that this talk is not to be missed!
