AA resurge

American Apparel is back!! Well, kind, in fact, this time around American Apparel is relaunching online.

Instead of being a monobrand brick and mortar store, America Apparel will follow the Amazon model, working with wholesale distribution such as Alphaborder and Sun Apparel. The brand will now veer away from it’s previous hypersexualized campaign images of young women. ‘[T]he approach now focuses on body positivity, inclusion and diversity. The new collections feature the signature American Apparel style once again, but their products are available in a broader range of shapes and sizes,” explained American Apparel in press release.

Canadian group Gilan bought the once financially strapped US fashion retailer in January 2017. The relaunch, which occurred on April 24, will service customers in over 200 companies.
