Alternative London

London has a thriving alternative community and whatever clothes, music and lifestyle you're into, you'll definitely find it here. Nothing is too way-out for London!

One of the many reasons I love London is because you can get anything you could ever want to wear here. No matter what subculture you identify with, you name it, London has it, somewhere. From the depths of Camden market, to specialist vintage stores in Brick Lane, you'll find everything from Mod suits to super chunk space boots, tribal, hippy, streetwear and T-shirts for every band you've ever heard of and loads you haven't! And to top it off, London is the place to wear all this awesome gear. One of my favourite bars is Holloway's Big Red with wood floors, number plates and tattooed n' pierced bar staff to make you feel right at home. Meanwhile the best bands play in brilliant venues like The Forum in Kentish Town, The Borderline in Soho, Islington Academy and Boston Arms in Tufnell Park.
