Teen apparel retailer American Apparel Llc has named Paul Charron , former head of handbag retailer Liz Claiborne Inc as chairman of its new board of directors, according to media reports.

Paul Charron, who served as the chief executive of Liz Claiborne - now known as Kate Spade & Co for 11 years until his retirement in 2006, will be one of three new directors joining the retailer's board. Charron has also served as senior advisor at private equity firm Warburg Pincus and has spent six years as chairman of Campbell Soup Co's (CPB.N) board.

Susan Davidson, who heads fashion boutique Scoop and design house Zac Posen and has worked at Bloomingdale's and Liz Claiborne, and Bruce Fetter, who runs women's luxury knitwear retailer St. John Knits, will also join American Apparel's board.

Los Angeles-based American Apparel, known for its "Made in the USA." fashion and risqué advertising, emerged from bankruptcy last month as a private company.

The retailer had filed for bankruptcy in October following years of losses and the ouster of founder and CEO Dov Charney.

American Apparel's other board members include CEO Paula
Schneider, who took the helm after Charney was ousted, and three representatives from its bondholders. (SH)
