More than retailAlexander is aware of the significance of a Black-owned business being located in the heart of East Austin, where many of the historically black-owned places have been replaced. She welcomes native Austinites to come and visit her and treat themselves to some of her carefully selected, unique items, most of which are ordered in very limited quantity to ensure a feeling of authenticity. While most items are only available for a season, Alexander has discovered the demand for her collection of women’s empowerment t-shirts, which are popular due to their affordable price, positive messaging, and feminine fit. These, she has committed to make more widely available. Altatudes is more than a retail outlet. It is the realization of a dream that aspires to includes others, exponentially. Alexander is an active and committed member of the Austin community and she hopes that the success of Altatudes will enable her to do even more to help the less fortunate and less hopeful. Before she even opened her doors, she offered the shop as a location for a school supply drive and collection point for Harvey relief. She looks forward to leading even more charitable efforts toward the community that she is now proud to be a part of. Stop by Altatudes real soon, and welcome our sister to the community. Altatudes, with its exalted state of style, is waiting to see you!
