Alabama Chanin shows garments from their 2008 and 2009 collections in the Pratt Institute’s Ethics + Aesthetics = Sustainable Fashion exhibition. Curated by Francesca Granata and Sarah Scaturro, the exhibition examines the relationship between fashion and sustainability, serving as a call-to-action. Alabama Chanin is featured alongside innovative designers and artists including Bodkin, Susan Cianciolo, Kelly Cobb, Loomstate, Suno, Zoë Sheehan Saldaña, Sans, Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Uluru, Andrea Zittel, and Tiprin Follett.
In the exhibition catalogue’s forward, Julie Gilhart of Barneys New York writes:
“Ethics + Aesthetics effectively broadens the reach of sustainable fashion, showing the visitor that there is a new movement underway in fashion consciousness that anyone can participate in.”
