topshop will not sign bangladesh accord

Back in April, hundreds of workers died after a building collapse at the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh. In the wake of this tragedy, the Bangladesh Safety Accord was created, with the aim of ensuring safety for clothing manufacturer employers. It’s overseen by the United Nation’s International Labor Organization, and signees to the accord agree to regular factory inspections and improved safety measures and standards at factories that produce their garments.

But guess who’s not down to protect the lives of their factory workers? TopShop, that’s who. Since April, more than 80 companies have signed the accord, including H&M, Mango and even Abercrombie & Fitch. (You can check out the full list here.) TopShop agreed to sign in May, but has yet to actually take pen to paper — even after they were urged by the British government to do so in June. Keep reading »

Whoa boy, Forever 21 is in trouble again. And this time it’s not with designers claiming the company has ripped them off. No, now the U.S. Department of Labor is peeved with the company, over their refusal to release labor records. Forevs was subpoenaed for the records on August 21, but has thus far refused to comply with the request. At issue are several wage, overtime and records-keeping violations by companies affiliated with the manufacture of Forever 21 merchandise. Keep reading »

I’m a little uneasy about getting older, but it’s definitely not something that’s on my mind 24/7. There is one place, however, that forces me to confront the harsh passage of time more than any other, and that’s the mall. Stores I once bounded into with youthful glee now turn me into a scowling curmudgeon. Here are 10 stores that my 27-year-old self can barely handle, and why … Keep reading »

Forever 21 gets sued by a lot of people, but usually it’s for things like copyright infringement or stealing designers’ work. The latest lawsuit is coming from inside the corporation, though. Employees Jazzreeal Jones, Jessica Ramos, Shanelle Thompson, Alyssa Elias and Tiffinee Linthicum claim that they were kept  after the ends of shifts and during their lunch breaks in order to be searched for stolen merchandise. Because in those cases they had already clocked out, the employees are claiming they deserve to be paid for that time. 

If their claim is deemed legitimate, then it could force Forever 21 to pay millions in back wages to other employees who have undergone similar treatment. Keep reading »

Forever 21′s warpath of cultural and social appropriation knows no bounds. Its latest target? The obscure ’80s San Francisco punk band Flipper, whose most well-known fan was probably the late great Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. It seems ye olde Forevs has reproduced a DIY-ed Flipper T that Kurt Cobain MADE HIMSELF in its latest round of men’s shirts. We suppose it’s rather smart of them to rip off a dead rockstar — much less likely to be sued by Cobain from beyond the grave than by some of the other victims of its recent scams. Still, we can’t help but hope someone from the band sees their blatant attempt at punk rock cred and calls them out on it in a very public, embarrassing way. It’s what Kurt would have wanted.

Forever 21 is going all American Apparel on our asses. Literally! A quick click-through on their online lingerie section revealed some scandalous cameltoe action. When the blogger for WTForever21 posted one of the most explicit examples on her Facebook page, the content was removed shortly thereafter. No reason was cited, though the blogger guesses the problem was that the “young women’s vagina lips [were quite] so clearly outlined.” They are called labia, honey.

Do y’all think this photo crosses the line? Or is Facebook just overreacting, as usual? [WTForever 21] Keep reading »
