Whether it's new funding announcements, organizational changes, style profiles or lookbooks, it's rare that a day goes by without some type of exciting Nasty Gal news. Today is no different, as the LA-based e-tailer's 28-year-old founder Sophia Amoruso is spotlighted in a lengthy feature on Forbes.com that is also printed in the July issue of Forbes magazine. The article reveals that the four-year-old fashion site is "on its way to quadrupling sales this year to $128 million, racking up gross margins of more than 60%, up there with retail’s most profitable ventures" and that Amoruso will soon launch her own clothing line.
