Hard to believe, but the American Apparel outpost on the Lower East Side turns nine this Thursday. Nine! The retail store at 183 East Houston was both a product of and force behind the first act of hyper-gentrification.
Desensitized. All these years later, its corporate hipster-ish presence seems oddly tame. Unless, of course, you factor in their controversial billboards around the corner on Allen Street.
To celebrate the occasion, the shop is throwing a fashion fete which includes some sales and gifts (4-8pm). If you bring the invite below, you’ll receive 15% off a purchase over $50.
