Bodies come in many different shapes, sizes, and shades. This a fact. This is not a controversial statement nor one that is terribly new.
The clothes store is using two pencil drawings of nudes by artist Boris Lopez, who also works for porn magazines Hustler and Barely legal. Judge for yourself if American Apparel has crossed the line. One blogger, Copyranterreferred to the new American Apparel campaign as "porny pencil illustration".
For most companies, posting a ninth straight quarter of losses wouldn't be cause for celebration. But things are different at American Apparel, the company known to have girls in bikinis wash its roof. In the past 12 months, American Apparel, led by founder Dov Charney, has undergone a wrenching series of changes to get the all-American clothing house, one of fashion's most prominent advertisers, back on the right track.
By Claire Cohen. American Apparel has gone and appointed its first female CEO. The problem began and hopefully ended with Dov Charney - the Canadian founder and CEO of the companywhose penchant for sleazy photography and voyeurism made him an international hate-figure. In June, he was sacked from the board amid scandal and allegations of sexual misconduct including holding one employee as a sex slave, disseminating nude photos of another and getting a woman to give him oral sex during an interview with a journalist.

When American Apparel declared bankruptcy and sold out last year, we thought it was dunzo. Well, except one major difference: All of the models on the website appear to be fully clothed. The previously Los Angeles-based company regularly depicted young women in sexually-charged positions, topless, pantsless, and borderline naked.
For several years now, concerned members of the fashion and business communities alike have been asking the same question: What can American Apparel do to turn its troubled brand around? In their highly publicized efforts to do so, the good people at AA have narrowly avoided filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, ousted then rehired, then re-ousted controversy-prone founder Dov Charney, hired and fired several other high-powered company executives and even purchased another hip, up-and-coming brand. All seemingly sensible moves.

After losing money for six consecutive years,  American Apparel filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U. In JanuaryAmerican Apparel laid off 2, Southern California workers and started the process of shutting down company factories and closing its stores, using Chapter 7-like tactics.

Controversial US retailer American Apparel has once again flouted advertising regulations with images of women in vulnerable poses "likely to cause serious offence" to visitors to its website, a watchdog has ruled. The clothing brand has regularly broken advertising rules for using exploitative images of young women. Recently the brand posted six photos of a model in a bodysuit and thigh-high socks on a bed without her face shown, from the front showing her legs open or in a kneeling or reclining position. Others, which carried text saying the model was a store consultant, showed her wearing only a jumper while her bottom half appeared naked, reclining on a bed with her legs in the air.
