    American Apparel (AA)

    Dezember 9th, 2013

    American Apparel, American fashion retailer, founded 1989 by Dov Charney. American Apparel started off as a wholesale textile company selling work clothing and uniforms to big companies. In 2003, AA established their retail business and has been since one of the fastest growing companies in the US and internationally with over 270 stores worldwide. AA produces all its clothing in Los Angeles and is against poorly paid sweatshop labor and a strong supporter of immigration rights. The retailer used to be known for basic wear such as t-shirts and underwear but has expanded to a broader offering. In October 2015, the fashion retailer filed for bankruptcy since it has been struggling with mounting debts and precipitous fall in sales for the last few years.
