A Movement To Reform Fashion

4/30/21 – PayUp Fashion adds American Eagle Outfitters (owner of Aerie) to the Brand Tracker. This is for two reasons: AEO and Aerie are among the fastest-growing brands in the retail industry with sales on track to top $1 billion just in the first quarter of 2021. And yet the company imposed steep discounts on some of its suppliers of 20% on products that were shipped or in production during the pandemic. The company never agreed to #PayUp. According to the Worker Rights Consortium, many brands eventually agreed to pay back discounts to suppliers, but AEO has not.
