This week’s ‘Designer vs High Street’ post features American brand Nasty Gal and French über-chic luxury brand Céline. Both have a single earring they’re selling in their stores, both look ridiculously similar but only one is a copyright original.
Now there’s nothing new about the high street copying designer pieces; it’s how it makes its money, selling an affordable version of the designer piece. While imitation is the norm for the fashion industry, copyright is not. It’s a fine line between the two and here Nasty Gal probably crossed it. But I leave that opinion up to you.
