Alternative Apparel Internship
This position will be based in their L.A. office.
At the core of Alternative, you will find creativity and passion. Their designs begin with an inspiration, materialize into conceptual sketches, and evolve into a t-shirt that finds its true meaning with the individual who wears it.
Alternative has been challenging the concepts of fashion since 1996. In the beginning, Alternative founder and creative designer Greg Alterman sold his t-shirt designs out of his car. His passion for designing the perfect t-shirt has since grown into one of today’s hottest apparel brands. Following Greg’s footsteps, all of us at Alternative believe that the t-shirt is an opportunity to express one’s self. We continue to bring together an extremely diverse culture of "Free-Thinking People" made up of artisans, musicians, designers, activists, students, and fashionistas alike. They surround Themselves with individuals who share their unique views and innovative style with the world around them.
