POP (Former), Los Angeles, CA Jan 12 2015

What is a company without its Visionary? Nothing. The core, the essence of American Apparel, has been taken away, and what has become a brand people know, will soon become just a brand, and not a culture like the creator had intentionally built and people had originally appreciated for what it was.

I had the opportunity to work along side this visionary for about 9 years! I learned a lot from him, and I am stunned at the boards decision. This company is his heart and soul and not many got to see the tender side of this amazing and passionate human being who has inspired many along his journey!
