The news of CEO Dov Charney being stripped of his chairmen duties and suspended as CEO of American Apparel has taken the fashion world for a spin. Dov Charney has been accused of an array of allegations surrounding various misconduct. As of today the specifics behind the sudden boot of Charney have been left to vague interpretation.

According to the letter that Buzzfeed received Charney was released from American Apparel due to breaching his fiduciary duty, violating company policy and misusing corporate assets. Along with other older allegations such sexual harrassment, bribing female employees, and not following company policy. The extra allegations have come to light due to the company’s deteriorating funds. According to the board Charney drove down the company with personal travel/ expenses, bribing, and a various amount of other allegations. Charney does have a grace period to ensue legal action to get his company back but in the mean time what does this mean for American Apparel.

With low funds and the shadow of Charney harboring dark clouds over the company can they overcome this hardship and get back to the foundation of the American Apparel brand. *
