Store Manager, Paris, France Jan 03 2015

Dov is American Apparel. He is unique and I don’t know if the company can keep on being what it is without him.

I’ve worked for several big companies in the past, and I’ve never seen a CEO that involved or that close to the field before. Ever.

I’ve met Dov only once, on a very unconventional occasion.
He is one special man.
He asked me about my opinion on several things. He seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say about the company, our products, our strategy, our customers, fashion, women.
I felt respected as an employee, as a woman who’s experience or thoughts were valued.

He is one special man.
A man that made our company one special company. A company that taught me what it was to be proud, proud to be part of something, proud of what I’m doing everyday. A company that creates clothes that are trendy and comfortable and that makes me feel good about myself.

I came to work at American Apparel because I loved sales and fashion, but couldn’t seem to find a company where people were as passionate as me.
I found exactly what I was looking for and I didn’t think that it existed.

Thanks to Dov, I feel like I’m part of something, and I doubt that anyone else can keep on making me feel the same.

I’m gonna keep on doing my job as good as I can, for the company, because it’s what he wants us to do but our family has lost a father.
