Cheap Online Alternative Clothing Stores
I'm looking for cheap online clothing stores (preferably UK-based) which sell Gothic and Alternative clothing.
I know loads of brands but they are quite pricey. My favourite brands are: Alchemy Gothic, Criminal Damage, Dead Threads, Demonia, Hell Bunny, Lip Service and Living Dead Souls. I'd love if I could find cheaper alternatives to these though.
Here's a bunch for you to try....
Osiris have a store in my hometown (Glasgow) that I've purchased from for more years than you've been alive...YIKES!! I feel old, but I've never used their online store.
My daughter and I have both purchased from Spiral Direct a few times recently.
Kates sometimes have decent stuff in their clearance section, as do Phaze (if you trawl through some tatt )
Hope you find some stuff you like, if not, let me know and I'll try & remember some more...
Thank you! I will check them out!
I'm in South Africa, but my dad goes to the UK every few months for work and we still have our house there so we get our stuff delivered there when he goes. That way we don't have to pay import tax which will double the cost. He decided to give me R1000 (about £90) so I can buy summer clothes, as I have almost none, and I can't find any nice clothes in South Africa.
All of those are way out of my price range =
I didn't realise clothes were that expensive in the UK, everything else we buy in the UK is so cheap compared to South Africa...
I'll think of some more places to try and get back to you later.
Nox hyde has a good selection of accessories and i was going to suggest hot topic but there too pricy
Don't know if they do worldwide shipping but they usually have some awesome and affordable stuff, especially in the sale section.
Its the clothing site run by vampirefreaks.com (its like myspace for goth/alternative people lol if youve never heard of it). vampirefreaks got so popular, they started selling clothes, and now they have their own store in NewYorkCity.
They sell all the brands u like (and more), and ship worldwide. They have high prices (same as what brands cost), but if u wait a few months, they drop them drastically. And have sales all the time. Its not real popular, so u wont miss much by waiting. And they explain sizing AMAZINGLY, on every piece of clothing.
oh, and if you are a member of vampirefreaks.com, there is a buy/sell/trade group on there u can join. Where members sell/trade their clothing & items, (which is mostly all alternative clothes). Its kinda like the swap board on here. Its amazing. But u have to be a member and stuff. lol
Those and hottopic are the only places i really shop at. :/ Im really poor also. Which is why i re-make all my clothes.
i know from stores that spiraldriect are expensive, as is gothichaven (based in germany). I get my clothes from camden market, still expensive but I got a spiraldirect hoodie and top for £45 because if you bought a hoodie u got a top free. My fiancé just took me there for my birthday and I had £80 to spend. i dont buy new clothes often though because of prices and the fact that my clothes still fit therefore i dont need new ones. the only clothes i buy each year are black vest tops because they end up with deodorant marks under the pits! they are about £3 from asda though so nice and cheap. have you tried looking on folksy? its supposed to be the "english etsy"
If you have StumbleUpon installed on your computer (If not, I recommend it) you can choose to Stumble for "Goth Culture" and that'll take you to many alternative stores as well as other web pages you might like. That's how I've found all my favorite clothing sites.

I've just ordered myself a t-shirt from these - http://gothicgarden.co.uk/Homepage and thought their prices looked okay. I also found here and have a skirt and dress on my pinterest wish list for when my bank account looks a little healthier http://www.alienskin.co.uk/ - they're a little pricier but the stuff looks good quality and a bit different. There's also here where I've got things in the past http://www.chaoticclothing.co.uk/
