Camilla Staerk has opened her first brick and mortar location in Nolita on Mulberry Street. We were worried about the cool quotient for a second there but balance has been restored.

They've been dealing with some bureaucracy issues including the Chinese government not allowing them to register their name as the direct translation of "american appareal" because of a copyright law which prohibits brands from using a country name in their brand name.

Speculation as to the outcome of such a change include the idea that LA Fashion Week could become something of a music festival. Yeah, that makes sense to us.
