Originally named Fashion 21, the fashion chain was founded on 1984, by CEO Don Chang and his wife at Los Angeles California. Trendy designs seen in South Korea were sold and targeted to the Los Angeles Korean-American community. However, other ethnicities began noticing the good clothing line that the store offered, and sales of the store by the end of the first year went from $35,000 to $700,000
The fashion chain helped pioneered affordable and trendy koreanesque fashion and accessories for both women and men.

Went to SM today, and i noticed that all of the previous tenants on the Forever 21 block had already moved out with Forever 21 putting up their advertising tarpulin to replace the otherwise dull wall it had. The block that forever 21 is occpuying is bigger than what i had expected. They are probably occpuying more than a 1000 square meters at the least.
