UK Retailer Enters Bid for Nasty Gal
Nasty Gal may have just been given a second chance. Boohoo, a Manchester-based fast-fashion e-tailer, has filed a certificate of incorporation of a private limited company for Nasty Gal Inc. Business of Fashion reports Boohoo has previously made many efforts to expand outside of the UK, opening pop-up shops in New York City during the holiday season in both 2014 and 2016.
Total Retail's Take: This might be a good fit for Nasty Gal. Since filing for Chapter 11 in the U.S., citing more than $20 million in unsecured claims, Nasty Gal has been looking for a lifeline. BooHoo, similar to fast-fashion retailers such as ASOS and Misguided, would be a good fit for Nasty Gal's current audience.
