749---article-image.jpgBack when we were just getting started in the fashion biz, brands like Enyce, Mecca and PNB-- the so called "urban brands" were also getting their start. Then, as the business began to mean something huge, the corporate takeovers began....Now, with the rise of streetwear beginning to really become important on a large scale at retail, we've been wondering when the acquisitins will begin. We keep hearing rumors about the LRG boys refusing HUGE offers to sell. And it's been announced in DNR today that Iconix, the company that's been on a shopping spree--  acquiring OP and Rocawear recently, will be acquiring Artful Dodger. Designer Scott Langton is expected to stay on with the company.
