Upon her return to London, she was appointed Fashion Director of Harper's & Queen. When editor Lucy Yeomans joined the magazine in 2000, Alison was promoted to Creative & Fashion Director. The magazine returned to it's former title of Harper's Bazaar in 2006 and Alison styled and art directed almost one hundred covers for the magazine and numerous fashion stories during her twelve year tenure, along with overseeing all fashion content.
She left Bazaar to move back to Los Angeles in 2009 when approached by Marie Claire US editor Joanna Coles, and was hired by Nina Garcia as Fashion Editor at Large , a position which she held for the next 9 years.
