Nasty Gal's First Store is Open for Business!
It looks like Los Angeles is about to get nastier! Online tongue-in-cheek shopping destination Nasty Gal celebrated the opening of its first brick-and-mortar store last night with a fete, where the brand's CEO/Founder Sophia Amoruso was joined by Charlize Theron and Azaelia Banks (both in Nasty Gal), as well as Sean Penn, Dylan Penn, Christina Milian and Christa B. Allen.
"We’ve been having a dialogue with our gal for eight years this month and to celebrate that, we’re taking the conversation offline," Amoruso says. "The brand is visceral. We have always been about bold personalities, a strong look, and a specific sound, and this is the first time we will be combining all of those elements into a real life, physical experience."
Designed by architect Rafael de Cárdenas, the shop takes inspiration from concert stages and features a shoe salon, magazine library, and live cactus garden. Sleek two-way mirrored dressing rooms dominate the clean space, which houses sassy mannequins clothed in a mix of Nasty Gal brand items and vintage designer pieces like faux-fur jackets, sparkly dresses, cheeky graphic tees, funky heels, and plenty of crop tops.
