American Apparel on Verge of Bankruptcy

Fab Flash: American Apparel Faces Financial Problems

Reports today are suggesting that US High Street store American Apparel are in some financial difficulty. The clothing company, famed for it's risque ad campaigns, has failed to file 6 months of financial reports and is in danger of being de-listed by the New York Stock Exchange.

It has been experiencing a decrease in revenue since 2008. They currently have two different accounting firms trying to make sense of their situation, but it doesn't look good for the future. CEO Dov Charney claims to not know anything about the current problems and is being accused of burying his head in the sand.

I really like American Apparel and am a big fan of their leggings, so would be sad to see them disappear. How about you – are you a fan of this store?

This brand has the right idea. At the same time, change is often necessary in order to survive great challenges. I hope that AA is able to persevere - and grow.

I'm quite surprised by this news; I had assumed that the company was doing extremely well, considering the huge celebrity and non-celebrity following. I love their hoodies and skirts, as well as their leggings. I love just wandering around their stores! It would be a shame to see them go under.

I hate AA's sleazy ad campaigns -- I don't want to associate with the ideal AA girl, who seems to spread her legs all over billboards everywhere, so I refuse to shop there. Frankly, I'm glad they're having financial problems.
