Alta Cation was officially born in Charlotte North Carolina in 2011. It is the brainchild of Jennifer Murphy, which came to life with the help of her sister Kat Murphy and best friend Amanda Stevens.
Throughout its introduction to the world collaboration with Charlotte Artists Mars Barrow and Carolyn Laws were integral to its development as a brand. From humble beginnings at UNC Charlotte as a part of their annual Honors Department fashion shows to Columbia Style Week and Passport to Fashion, Alta Cation has worked to create art through fashion.
Alta Cation has been lucky enough to work with photographers such as Nathaniel Pierce, Six Cents photography, Photographic Elegance and many more in order to establish a photographic body of work.
