The concept of the launch was to cater to the darker, more gothic and aristocratic side of Lolita fashion that may not particularly fit with the softer, sweeter, more pastel and innocent look of the original line. Since then however, Alice in its own right has become an extremely popular and well renowned label all over there world!
