Because business is all rainbows and unicorns here in the States, American Apparel is expanding to highbrow department store in Europe.
American Apparel and highbrow? Those are two words that don't belong in the same sentence!
UK department store Selfridges plans to carry the overpriced generic clothing at six more stores in the next year and France's Galeries Lafayette is expected to do the same.
There's also a rumor that Bloomingdale's in the US will carry AA as well, but the deal has yet to be finalized.
As for why they're going the department store route, sources say it's "a way for the company to expand its business without spending a lot of capital".
Think it'll work???

Seems like LC and MTV are no longer on good terms.
After MTV announced on Friday that they passed on her reality show, Lauren Conrad has responded, lashing out at the network.
In response to MTV's Head of Programming saying that the show "just didn't feel like a perfect fit for us now," Lauren said:
"We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life. We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it."
Ouch! LC clearly thinks she's too good for MTV!
What do U think? Would U have watched her reality show?
