Sophia Amoruso put the GAL into nasty and turned the fashion world on its head with her meteoric rise to fame. Cool, conﬁdent, with inimitable style, Amoruso reinvented chic with her incisive understanding of vintage style, punk and funk. Don’t underestimate the brain power behind the brand. Clever clever ‘Amoruso’ styling inspired a cult of followers on eBay, where she honed her skills, found her inner entrepreneur and cemented the foundations for Nasty Gal’s Formula 1 rise to international prominence with collections of vintage and fresh evolving retro styles.
Her acclaimed Nasty Gal brand broke all conventional expectations and smashed all the speed records to success precisely because of her badass background. Young fashionistas, wannabe models, divas, teenage girls, scrummy mummies, spotty teenagers and even wise slightly older ‘out there’ birds, all related on some level to the enigmatic #GIRLBOSS, Sophia Amoruso, and discovered a brand where they felt they belonged. She foraged in dumpsters and got her ﬁngers burnt shoplifting, but unwavering self belief, drive and determination turned her already less ordinary life into one quite extraordinary. Subliminally the message is powerful. Dare to dream. Be different, follow your instincts, unleash your inner power and you can achieve your goals.
The ‘Nasty Gal’ brand name was inspired by funk singer and Hollywood style icon, Bette Davis’ 1975 album of the same name. A touch of genius and the same instinct that has drawn her public in and seen her business spiral to over a $100 million in revenue. As businesses evolve and diversify, there is a constant need for reinvention. Amoruso has served her apprenticeship. She is a different creature now to the young driven individual who launched a whirlwind and watched it gather momentum. Now selling daring designer pieces as well as its own exclusive line, what is the next chapter in the story of Nasty Gal? One thing is for sure. It will be worth waiting for.
