Literally—it's a fashion riot at the American Apparel Rummage Sale in Brick Lane. What are they fighting over? Some cut-price wet-look leggings? This is what happens when 29,000 rabid shoppers RSVP to your dollar-sale in Brick Lane. No wonder the police closed it down. Still no word on whether the rummage sale will reopen tomorrow with beefed-up security.
