A reader sent in this befuddling tweet from someone named Ashley Garcia: "@OfficialALT it was great meeting you today at American Apparel, I'd love to touch base with you in the future -Ashley :)"
To which we thought, "Huh? Andre Leon Talley at American Apparel? Is this a joke? Is Ralph Rucci designing stretch cotton capes for Dov Charney?"
And then American Apparel confirmed with Fashionista that Andre Leon Talley did indeed visit the company's LA factory.
The recent lawsuit brought against Dov Charney for allegedly choking an employee isn't the only reason American Apparel is in the news today: The retailer's risque digital campaigns have been deemed "irresponsible" by an advertising watchdog in the UK, The Telegraph is reporting.
According to the complaints, American Apparel's ads featured "gratuitous" nudity and the sexualization of models who appear to be under 16. We know... shocker.
