Our Philosophy

Alternew believes the fashion industry has to change, and we’re working to do that. If we can improve the way that alterations are done to make them more convenient and body-affirming, then more people will want to alter their clothes.

If we can extend the life of the garments we own, improve their fit, and make simple updates to keep those clothes on-trend (even as trends change), then we can reduce 80 pounds of clothing the average American throws away each year.

With a few simple adjustments, mass-produced clothing can have a bespoke fit– and you deserve an experience of luxury that doesn’t come at the cost to the planet or drain your bank account.
