American Apparel’s Ryan Holiday released the following statement to Gothamist:

American Apparel is a company that celebrates natural beauty, and the Lower East Side Valentine’s Day window continues that celebration. We created it to invite passerby’s to explore the idea of what is “sexy” and consider their comfort with the natural female form. This is the same idea behind our advertisements which avoid many of the photoshopped and airbrushed standards of the fashion industry. So far we have received positive feedback from those that have commented and we’re looking forward to hearing more points of view.

    What’s the purpose of this? I don’t want to see that. And if you want to be realistic, make the mannequins look like a size 12/14.

    Neither – it’s just dumb.
