I really wish I could understand why fashion so often succumbs to this immoral laziness. Top brands, successful people just literally rip off an EXACT design from another designer and sell it under their own label. It is so outrageous and I don't understand why no one ever says anything! Like Ivanka bloody Trump** or Jessica Simpson or Mary Kate and Ashley or, for God's sake, Chiara Salad Ferragni need any more money! Can you at least alert your design department not to blatantly copy-paste a design from a brand which you probably WEAR (or are gifted!!) Imagine a blogger or celebrity getting a pair of shoes as a gift from the designer then taking it to their Chinese factory being all "hey copy this gift and make me money from it"! Outrageous! What is most demoralizing is the copies made even by incredible top brands like Prada/ Miu Miu. I mean Miu Miu! The temple of originality! The last non-sellout! I couldn't believe it! WHY. Not only the same exact heel, same cut, same style but the whole bloody SS14 collection was copied! What the framboise, people. JUST COME UP WITH SOME OTHER DESIGNS. Holy crap! It's your job! All designers do it: Michael Kors practically built his empire on copies. This sucks. Greed always does prevail. So gross.
** I especially call out Ivanka Trump for copying the work of a SMALL designer. So below the belt.
