I immediately coveted this hair style when I saw it on the runway show a couple of weeks ago. And I decided to try the style this past weekend at a music concert I went with my husband... and I loved it even more! How to create a T-shirt from scratch - tutorial 1 November 2008 I had a little emptiness of inspiration in last days and my friend suggested me to write such tutorial. Firstly it was concentrated just on torn typo, but later I thought- hey! Why not to create whole shirt? It isn’t a big problem for me.

The only thing going for American Apparel was its controversial advertising It’s no surprise that American Apparel is on the brink of filing for bankruptcy – just that it has taken this long. After posting less than pleasing second quarter sales figures – which saw a 17.2% drop over the past year – it’s hard to see how the retailer will come back. And trimming $30 million from its spending – as it plans to do – will be no small feat.

Competitor’s analysis American Apparel does business in an exceptionally competitive landscape. AA has many competitors; however, a few of their main competitors are H&M, Arcada, Inditex, Benetton and Gap. These companies not only offer similar products to American Apparel, but also target a very similar demographic. Their products are intended to appeal to young, “metropolitan” adults between the ages of 20-30. These consumers are mostly nearing the end of their education and moving on to careers in the workforce. They mostly do not have access to a large disposable income, therefore clothing cannot be so expensive that it will be unable to be purchased regularly.

The Ultimate Round-Up Of T-Shirt Design Tutorials - Smashing Magazine Advertisement Among all of the graphic designers in the world, many of them have probably had a go at designing some cool artwork for t-shirts. The t-shirt, after all, is one of the world’s most purchased products, and a lot of us wouldn’t know what to do without them! The rise and fall of American Apparel It wasn't having oral sex with an employee in front of a female journalist that now threatens to undo Dov Charney, founder of American Apparel. Nor was it simulating oral sex with another female member of staff whom he had ordered to pretend to masturbate in front of him. The 41-year-old's professional and personal reputation isn't even on the line because at least three female employees have filed sexual harassment lawsuits against him (all the cases were settled before reaching trial); nor because he walks through his factory in his underpants and conducts meetings wearing just a thong – or a sock. The sock is not, one should add, worn on his foot. For the exhibitionist Charney, whose excesses are the stuff of fashion-industry legend, to be finally humbled by accounts that are more street corner than Wall Street is, some might think, a bit like Al Capone finally being brought to book over tax evasion. But whatever the catalyst, it has led to the unravelling of an empire.

American Apparel could start closing UK stores One of American Apparel’s flagship stores, in London’s Covent Garden, could be closed along with four other UK shops. The embattled US fashion retailer is thought to be considering disposing of its shops in Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham and the store on Neal Street in Covent Garden and has appointed UK retail property specialist Kitchen La Frenais Morgan, Property Week reported (£). This would leave the chain, which became known for its Made in the USA clothes, as well as its controversial ads, with four stores outside London – in Brighton, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester. The Los Angeles-based retailer is expected to hold on to its other nine stores in London, alongside a concession in department store Selfridges. Struggling to repair its battered reputation and finances, American Apparel appointed four new directors, including its first female director, to the board in July. American Apparel and Kitchen La Frenais Morgan both declined to comment.

American Apparel SS16 Campaign March 24th, 2016 Provocative basics at their very best. Everyone’s favourite provocative basics brand has dropped its new Spring Summer 16 campaign complete with its candid snapshot aesthetic. Risqué images have always been at the forefront of American Apparel’s campaign and this time is no different, showing there’s no intention of straying too far from their (well-loved) roots. With its diverse range of bare faced, bushy eyebrowed models, the campaign combines a mixture of ‘at home’ shots, laid out on a sofa chair and sprawled on a living room rug, with holiday snapshots featuring a sunset that will have you booking a sunny break faster than your flip flops can take you. Of course, the campaign isn’t short of skin (and who would want it to be?!)

American Apparel Shutters Its Bargain-Happy Flea Market, Could Outsource Denim Following a blink-and-you-missed-it blowout, American Apparel has shuttered its DTLA Factory Flea Market. The LA-based label revealed the news on its Facebook page earlier last month, and we're guessing it's part of that downsizing plan, which was expected to happen by March 31st. However, there are still $2 denim deals in LA's future: the outlet store is expected to relocate, but no word yet on the exact coordinates; we've reached out to the brand for more deets. The major markdowns happening across all of AA's stores are part of it's efforts to "sell off [excess inventory]," which has been among AA's issues, WWD reports. The trade pub also revealed that the basics giant is undergoing yet another round of layoffs (yikes). In addition, WWD notes that the label "will also consider outsourcing more complicated garments, including denim."
