Nasty Gal is the brainchild of Sophia Amoruso who started the company in 2006 on eBay selling one-of-a-kind vintage clothing. Sophia sourced, styled, shot, and shipped her sartorial pieces to tastemakers worldwide on her own. Amoruso was an early e-tail pioneer in the social media arena, using word-of-mouth and social platforms exclusively to build her brand and communicate with customers and fans. Nasty Gal has grown over 500% each year since its inception and counts over 150,000 customers in more than 50 countries with over 35% of sales occurring outside of the US. Today, Nasty Gal has over 200,000 Facebook fans, 30,000 Twitter followers, 50,000 Instagram followers, and a growing base of Pinterest users as part of their rapidly growing cult following.
