Nestled in the heart of southern Americana is a style savvy, eco chic and continuously creative fashion collective and shop called Community. Founded in Athens, Georgia in 2010 by designer and entrepreneur Sanni Baumgartner, Community offers a selection of organic and ethical fashion alongside re-designed vintage garments that contribute to the local economy and support Athens’ artists and designers. For her Spring 2014 (cleverly named) Community Service collection, Sanni took inspiration from her home environment and collaborated with local manufacturers and artists, leading the example for creating sustainable clothing in the USA.

The Community Service Spring/Summer 2014 collection features a naturalistic yet modern take on garments. Sanni based the most recent collection on prints of tree bark, lichen and moss taken from the landscape of the North Georgia mountains, translating them onto fabrics and their form on the human body.
