Sophia Amoruso likes to do things big. Her Nasty Gal parties are consistently colossal, her brand's fulfillment center in Kentucky is gargantuan and her list of achievements is forever expanding. Hell, even her favorite children's book is called The Big Friendly Giant. Amoruso's latest large-scale project is the opening of a 50,300-square-foot HQ in the heart of Downtown LA.
We first caught wind of the move back in December, when the e-tailer's founder revealed on Instagram that she just signed the Pac Mutual Building space's lease. After much nail-biting, last week we finally caught a glimpse of the new digs via a Facebook capture of the ever-expanding Team NG inside what we imagine is the lobby. If you thought their first DTLA office was enviable, get a load of this.
Above is a peek at the space's stylish break room, which Amoruso calls a "coffee zone." She also reveals that "all 200 of us in LA will be in the same space for the first time in 3 years," making Nasty Gal HQ 2.0 the ideal hub for her tech-savvy, trend-transforming "tribe."
