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, news on new designs, and other articles of interest.

Self published as part of the editior's business (Leona Turford Photography), Alt Fashion is, and always has been produced and maintained in house by the editor. With the view to keep access free to visitors, as well as keeping the site clutter free, without any need to process data from our 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 be sure that your privacy is always maintained at all times when visiting this site, and our associated directory site also.

With regards to all site content, unless otherwise stated, any articles and features published on the site are the work of the editor - all other articles are correctly cited to the contributor. Wherever possible, all image credits are listed when provided on all articles and features. Any images not including a citation have been provided by the designer/company/event/shop featured.
