SHANGHAI — American Apparel’s ambitions to buck the conventional wisdom of fashion retailing are now poised for export — to China.
The retailer is this weekend expected to open its first store on the Mainland, in the World Trade Center in Beijing, after months of delays. American Apparel hopes to open four more stores in the country this year and faces the daunting task of marketing American-made garments to the world’s largest apparel producer.
