Dara Krausankas, HQ Visual Merchandiser, Los Angeles, CA Feb 01 2015

Dov Charney has consistently been one of the most influential mentors throughout my professional career over the last seven years at American Apparel.

Under his hands on, multi-faceted approach I have been given an opportunity to not only grow in the field of visual merchandising, my major focus while attending the Fashion Institute of Technology, but also learn the ins-and-outs of the business across the board.

Though some may view Dov’s behavior to be extreme and sometimes off-beat, it was that passion that was important in keeping the brand alive and ever-evolving.
