I must have had Natalie on my mind already, since we were planning to get together during Fashion Week. But it was the hem of her coat that caught my attention last week as Tsia and I were on our way down Avenue B. That coat was standing across the street from us, and I immediately thought of Alabama Chanin and her designs when I glimpsed it. (I tend to walk looking down when I'm with Tsia. There was someone inside that coat, but my eyes were mostly on the sidewalk.)
All the same, I was completely taken aback when I looked up and saw it was her. Right there on our way to preschool! I love New York. Big city? No way. I run into dear friends all the time. It's a small town, I swear it. So small that someone from Alabama can suddenly seem like a neighbor.
Anyway, Natalie and I sat down in the showroom for tea yesterday morning, and I had an opportunity to view the new Alabama Chanin collection first hand. Here's a little taste. Enjoy!
Thanks, Natalie. I can't wait for book number two!
