“Ten young women dressed in a catwalk-ready mix of denim fringe vests, short shorts, neon sheer tops and 5-inch platform boots are clustered in a downtown Los Angeles conference room on a recent morning.

A recent USC grad chimes in: “I love what Nasty Gal has done for me.””

“Indeed, according to a recent report by Bain & Company, a consulting firm, the luxury menswear market is growing at almost 14 percent per year, outpacing growth in womenswear by almost double.
