Jodi Maclean, Former Store Manager, Montreal Dec 17 2014
I had the pleasure of working for American Apparel for two years, from 2008 to 2010. Dov Charney’s compassion was most admirable. For Dov, it was not all about the money; it was also about the people and the product he was producing. His mind and spirit were totally invested for all the right reasons and not many owners/creators are willing to get their hands dirty like Dov Charney. He worked long hours, attended warehouse sales, helped with shipments, and even got in on the action in stores. These type of people are far and few to come by.
Most companies conform to what society wants but not American Apparel, that’s what makes them so unique. Dov’s joy for life radiates through the vibrant colors as you walk into an American Apparel store. I am to this day very grateful for the chance to be part of the American Apparel family. Cheers to Dov’s creative genius!
