Well, it’s been a while, but we are happy to say that we are back, with our tasty dish; bigger and better. With a new shiny blog for you all. As you know this year has been extraordinary and there have been so much change in the world. We have all had to adapt and take solace in our hobbies and interests over this time.
We will be bringing you information, fun ideas for you to try out and generally opening the world of Alternative to you. We will be exploring the different styles within the Alternative scene primarily focusing on fashion, touching on music, and venturing into the world of alternative home decor and lifestyle, incorporating our love of the weird, wonderfully unique and different.
So what is Alternative fashion I hear you say. Alternative fashion is the style given to clothing trends which have not complied to the mainstream fashion trends which you would normally find in the stores up and down high streets and translated from above, from the designer brands. The term ‘Alternative’ generally encompasses such scenes as Punk, Rockabilly, Goth, Hip Hop, Lolita and Emo to name a few (but certainly not limited to these). The whole concept of Alternative, also referred to as ‘Alt fashion’ is the idea of going against the grain, rejecting and not conforming to the popular fashion trends of the time. This often leads to very artistic and exaggerated looks and outfits.
Alternative subculture is a fairly modern development, but has always been a magnet for those who wish to live outside the social norms, behaviours and styles. Deeply routed within music, art and fashion, many of these iconic subcultures can still be seen on the streets today. There are always new subcultures evolving, and include such newer emerges of New-Age Goths, New-Age Steampunk and Bronies for example (to name a few). The main subcultures originated during the 20th Century (while taking inspiration from previous eras) however with the advance of technology, since the turn of the millennia there has been a wave of niche trends which can come and go as quick as you can update your social media account. Just remember, that even though these subcultural trends used to be deemed as youthful phases, the fashions are not limited by age, sex or lifestyle. Most importantly we want to remind you that fashion is about creating your own unique style, not being afraid to experiment and most of all, having fun!
