Thank you for creating American Apparel.

Over the past 30 years (11 of which I’ve been along for) you have built a vibrant, innovative and open company that 10,000 diverse people are presently a part of.

Though you’re not physically here with us at the moment, the factory is a constant reminder of the kind of man you are. Only an extraordinary person would build something this ambitious and special. Every day that I walk through the floors, Im so thankful that it exists. You made it possible and nothing can change that.

Remember – the people that know you love and support you.

Vision. Passion. Integrity. Authenticity. Can-do Spirit.
That’s Dov Charney. That’s American Apparel.
