Amsterdam. The company's 60 sq. m. concession space inside the high-end
department store in the Netherlands will be located on Dam Square, the main

brand has always resonated well with the Dutch customer and we've been looking

The store will showcase the company's line of fashionable basics alongside its
new lines which feature leather, denim and winter products. Its initial

We've also found that it exposed us to new customers and demographics who have
gone one to become regular shoppers and fans of the American Apparel, Made in
