MISS ALPHABET

MISS ALPHABET

With a penchant for 80’s and early 90’s super girly motifs, Miss Alphabet will walk you right down memory lane. Her designs hit you straight in the face with elements of Barbie, new wave, 80’s and 90’s inspired elements (hello, ballerina bears?), and of course, j-fashion. The founder, Liz, began with more punk and
rockabilly styles but quickly abandoned those upon discovering fairy kei brands like Spank! and Nile Perch. Originally you could bid on one of her creations on eBay if timing was on your side, but now there’s plenty for everyone on her website and Etsy shop!

RONOVA

RONOVA

RONOVA (rō-nō-vä) is an independent fashion design house focused on creating handmade styles inspired by the Rococo and Baroque period. We are inspired by and strive to create pieces that reflect elements of the vintage fashion periods that we love not only in design but with raw materials, fabric, hardware, and in some cases, construction.
We are thrilled to return to the ALA Fashion Show for 2022 and look forward to seeing everyone again in person!

Modern technological luxury, effortless elegance, and intentional utility are three fundamental principles the brand is committed to portraying.
