Los Angeles - Fast-fashion retailer Forever 21 currently faces a lawsuit from a SoCal manufacturer. The Gardena-based manufacturer Fashion Life Inc. claims that the trendy chain of retail stores has yet to pay up bills that are overdue.
The six-page complaint states that the popular retailer owes over 50,000 thousand dollars currently for a shipment of women’s clothing that were manufactured specifically for Forever 21. According to WWD, Fashion Life is allegedly owed 55,832.50 dollars from Forever 21. The clothing order shipment was accepted with no returns or complaints, according to Fashion Life. The manufacturer said in its complaint that it has tried multiple times to collect its payment from the retailer. According to Apparel News, Forever 21 declined payment every time that Fashion Life asked for compensation. The vendor requested that the retailer pay in addition to attorneys’ fees and other damages.
