"American Apparel" "Black face"
We discussed image in class the other day, and I thought of Lny. So this one is for you! When I saw this ad i was completely appalled and my jaw dropped, but I was sadly not surprised. Printed in a british fashion magazine (iD magazine) AA states that they did not create the ad and that it was created and run by the magazine and all following grievances will be 'conveyed' to the designers at iD. It's nice to see an American company that prides itself on being 'american' made to sexual and racially exploit models for press and profit.
