Lotus Pod opened its first not-for-profit fashion boutique in December 2004 in Sydney’s Darlinghurst. It instantly struck a chord with the locals and word spread quickly. Initially the fashion was sourced locally but as we gained a better understanding of our customers needs we started our own label Alice Underground in 2006.
Alice Underground was created to fill a perceived gap in the fashion market, combining the price point of affordable “commercial” fashion with the flair and exclusivity that is usually reserved for high end designer labels. We always endeavour to find fresh twists and new shapes that are flattering, feminine and directional.
Getting to know our customers through the years has really shaped the overall direction of our stores. We are continuously sourcing the best of what is available both locally and abroad. Our dedication to offering the best overflows to our striking selection of jewellery and quirky gifts. Our stores are in a constant state of metamorphosis as we have new stock arriving on a daily basis.
As a charity, Lotus Pod is dedicated to creating a more harmonious and compassionate world. We sponsor worldwide philanthropic and welfare activities including food relief, education, self-sufficiency and the spiritual upliftment of humanity.
One of the many projects we support is the inspirational charity Food For Life Vrindavan. FFLV is a humanitarian aid organisation working with some of the poorest villages in Vrindavan, India. They provide education, nutrition and health care to children in need through the Sandipani Muni School. To make a donation or sponsor a child please visit their website; http://fflvrindavan.org/en/
