“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,” Holiday added.
The display has taken the Twitterverse by storm, with several people applauding the display, while others saying it is in poor taste.
