As the founder and owner of Nasty Gal, the fastest-growing online retailer in the country, Sophia Amoruso is the creative visionary, modern-day entrepreneur and fashion doyenne who has forged an unprecedented path in building a modern brand. Named by Forbes as “Fashion’s New Phenom,” Amoruso’s rising success and business savvy was touted for being “up there with retail’s most profitable ventures.” On November 21st, Amoruso opened Nasty Gal’s first-ever flagship store with a 2,500 sq. ft. retail space located on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. As part of the brand’s expansion beyond e-commerce, the brick-and-mortar offers highly-curated vintage pieces, on-brand labels, as well as Nasty Gal’s own line. Previously, in May 2014, Amoruso debuted her highly anticipated, first book titled #GIRLBOSS under the Portfolio and Putnam imprints of Penguin Random House. Part memoir and part business book with an edge, #GIRLBOSS is a sassy and irreverent look into how Amoruso organically grew her business from the ground up. The book tells Amoruso’s extraordinary personal story, offering insights on entrepreneurship and career advice. #GIRLBOSS was a New York Times Best Seller. Having caught the attention of Silicon Valley, The New York Times poetically put it, “if ever there were a Cinderella of tech, Sophia Amoruso might be it.” With relentless obsession over all things web and social media, Amoruso has propelled her brand’s unforgettable aesthetic on every channel including a million followers on Facebook and 1.2 million followers on Instagram. As these carefully curated pages have “translated ‘likes’ into sales” according to Forbes, Amoruso has revolutionized marketing with a business built almost entirely on unpaid social media from day one, today drawing millions of visitors back to the Nasty Gal site every month.Contributing Editor @ Contributing Editor penning a regular column, titled Girlboss Rules, for Marie Claire's @Work section.
