About Alt Fashion

Alt Fashion in it's present form has been actively online since early 2006. An independently produced and run website, created with the sole intention of helping to promote alternative companies, designers, and shops within the UK.

At the time, few resources were available for such a niche market, with the majority of sites catering to more of a worldwide, or predominately U.S based market. By creating this site, visitors were able to find out about homegrown alternative and independent talent, from alternative shops in their area, to features on designers, and events across the country.

Now, into 2018, the site continues to provide visitors with content on alternative designers and companies around the UK and worldwide, alongside publishing coverage of forthcoming events of interest, news on new designs, and other articles of interest.

Self published, Alt Fashion is, and always has been produced and maintained in house by the editor – running it as an extension of her self employed business, Leona Turford Photography. With the view to keep access free to visitors, as well as keeping the site clutter free, without any need to process data at all from visitors.

Whenever you read any content, or click on a link on our directory site – it's all free, and no data is ever collected by Alt Fashion. So you can sure that your privacy is always maintained at all times when visiting this site.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. You are responsible for checking this policy when you visit our site to review the current policy. If you do not agree with the policy, you should cease use of the site immediately.
