As chairman, Charron will be joined on the new board by two other apparel industry vets, according to Bloomberg. Susan Davidson, also a Liz Claiborne vet, currently runs Scoop boutiques and the Zac Posen design house. Bruce Fetter is CEO of St. John.

This rounds out the seven-person board, which includes CEO Paula Schneider. She took that position after the ouster of American Apparel founder Dov Charney.

American Apparel emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy as a private company after successfully implementing a reorganization plan.
