    When you work at Alternative, you join a community, not a department. You become an outlier within the fashion industry because others don't have to fail for you to succeed.  Alternative is a company of entrepreneurs who are driven by passion, not job descriptions, where you can contribute to something you're proud to wear--on your body and your résumé.
