About Us

Who and What?

Kate's Clothing is a unique online destination that beckons fashion enthusiasts into a world of dark aesthetics and alternative styles.

There is a real Kate (it's me)! It was supposed to be hobby back when I started in 2004, not the most imaginative of names but it works (and it's way too late change it now!). Anyway, here we are, many years and two kids and two divorces later and my passion for it is stronger than ever.


What makes www.katesclothing.co.uk so special?

We're a very small team of alternative types (I'm not going to write anyone's name because whenever I do that on an About Us page, somebody leaves. It's happened so many times that I'm now completely superstitious about it. I really like this lot so I don't want that to happen). We have our own dedicated little office and warehouse so we can make sure everything gets the care and attention it should.


What you'll get from us is a curated selection of the best gothic fashion, homeware and more, at a fair price with personal care and attention to customer service. We offer a price match guarantee, free UK shipping (minimum spend applies) and free UK returns. Plus there's a reward points scheme (just click the little "Rewards" button on the bottom right of the screen).


But wait, there's more!

There are several reasons why www.katesclothing.co.uk stands out from other online fashion retailers:

1. Extensive Selection: The website offers a vast selection of alternative fashion items, ensuring that you'll find something that suits your taste and style.

2. Quality Products: Now, you might be thinking, "Sure, the clothes are quirky, but are they actually good quality?" Fear not, my fashion-forward friend! The team at www.katesclothing.co.uk understands that looking good shouldn't mean sacrificing quality. We are fully committed to providing high-quality products. We only work with reputable brands and carefully curate our collection to ensure that every item meets our standards.

3. Excellent Customer Service: The team at www.katesclothing.co.uk is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service.

4. Secure Shopping: When shopping online, security is paramount. www.katesclothing.co.uk takes this seriously and ensures that all transactions are secure and your personal information is protected.

5. Honest Product Reviews: We publish all genuine product reviews (having checked for any inappropriate language etc.)

6. Charity Support: We're supporters of the Bat's Conservation Trust, British Heart Foundation and Lend with Care.

7. Environmental Credentials: As a micro business, to a certain extent, we're reliant on the big players to lead the way and make sustainable choices more affordable, as they have the economies of scale. However, we're constantly working on ways to improve ourselves. We reuse packaging as much as possible. The mailing bags we use are produced from sugar cane, carbon neutral and fully recyclable. We also helped to plant 1500 trees (like actually, not just paying someone else to do it). We also use entirely renewable energy in our office and warehouse. Obviously this is nowhere near enough, but we'll keep at it, in any way we can.
