High Street fashion labels are notorious for copying styles, prints and silhouettes from big designer labels and flood the market with cheap knock-offs. Top Indian designer, Rahul Mishra is the latest victim of blatant plagiarism indulged in by the Denmark based clothing company – Bestsellers that own brands like Vero Moda, Only and Jack & Jones.
The blatant copied version of Rahul Mishra’s white top paired with bottom from his spring-summer 2017 collection is currently being retailed by Vero Moda, both online and through brick & mortar stores The duplicacy is shamelessly near 100%. The ruffles around the armhole and the embroidery on the bodice are replica.
Rahul Mishra’s legal team in India and Paris have already issued a legal notice to the parent company of Vero Moda in Denmark. The copied dress was showcased by Rahul Mishra in Paris in October 2016 in his spring-summer 2017 collection. The Vero Moda knock-off is still available online.
