Sharing

littleflowers
I can't say how happy it makes me that my collaboration with my friend Natalie & and the team at Alabama Chanin continues. It was several months ago that I first shared our work together, which is so small in comparison to the great expanse of her beautiful collection, but I beam with pride to see the gorgeous garments, knowing that so many hands stitched each and every little delicate flower so intently.  It all feels so good and fortified, especially since I have had the pleasure of wearing a piece myself (which continues to stretch as needed around my belly) for months.

And now, in classic Alabama kindness, she shares with all of us the opportunity to bypass the investment of many dollars and instead invest much love and work into a piece of our own making and design-but with so much inspiration to get started!  The Little Folks and Little Flowers Stencils are now available in our very own shop as a starting point to any number creative journeys- these are the very same large and durable stencils that the team at AC use to create their garments.  She has also just posted one of her intriguing stitch maps for tips on creating a very embellished landscape of beauty!  (Although I can't get the thought out of my head to use them on a nursery wall!)

Finally, I am honored that the Alabama Chanin Journal has (and will be) focused on our collaboration all week, sharing a little something different everyday- today there is even a Greek recipe in my family's honor (blush + yum!).  I was meant to be farther South with them in the studio this week, but life had other plans for us.  We resorted to emails, and some very in depth text messages while she traveled from LA to home, and I cared for some sick kids.  Both of us pontificating on the finer points of keeping things running as moms, and designers.  She is such good company to my heart when we get the chance, and I do soon hope to cook the next Greek studio meal myself for her, perhaps with a baby on the hip.

happy Spring friends!!! xoxoAM

  3. You two ladies do seem to be natural collaborators, whose uniquely individual talents harmonize very, very well. The colors, the stitching, the beautiful fabrics, the clothing designs...and the hand sewn detailing equal treasures!

    I had a wonderful time following up on all the links to the various designs. That lunch looked rather terrific, too!

    Best wishes.
