Alabama Chanin is officially founded on September 22, 2006. Five years after Natalie’s first Project Alabama collection, the organization begins a new chapter with two employees and twenty-two sewers, many of whom had been a part of the project since its inception. Barneys New York, once again, becomes the first stockist of the newly updated label.
