I hope you had a great week, I am sure that heard about the Big Scandal of the Kat Middleton’s wedding dress, Not yet ?
Today we will talk about the copy cat in the fashion industry.
Roberto Cavalli Sued for Copyright Infringement by Street Artists
In his Spring/Summer 2014 line of Just Cavalli clothing, accessories, and shoes, Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli used direct designs of murals drawn in 2012 by street artists in the San Francisco Mission District, without the artist’s permission.
The street artists have asked Cavalli since June to stop using their murals in his clothing line, but he has refused. Cavalli took some of the artist’s actual signatures or their tags on the murals, and has in some instances superimposed his own signature and label “Just Cavalli” onto the artwork on the clothing and accessories.
So, given just these recent suits and the state of the law, it seems likely that the street artists will get at least some of the damages they’re seeking in the lawsuit from Cavalli.
- Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, Alexander McQueen:
Of course we have to talk about the scandal of the week. Here the story: Sketches for the royal gown were submitted for selection by Christine Kendall, but she was not selected by the Duchess who chose Alexander McQueen ( designer : Sarah Burton).
However the owner and designer of Christine Kendall Couture claims her own work is evident in the Duchess’ dress. She has issued legal proceedings at London’s Intellectual Property Enterprise Court and her solicitors have noted there is no suggestion of wrongdoing by Buckingham Palace.
A spokesman for McQueen says the label is “baffled” by Kendall’s accusations and claims Burton never saw or knew of any of her designs.
To be continue…
Of Course there is hundreds of lawsuits for copy cat between big Designers like the very famouse trial: Christian Louvoutin agains YSL. But when a famous brand copycat a smaller artist, for the stylist that I am really it is just not possible !!
