Designer versus High street

Designer vs High Street: Nasty Gal vs Céline

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.

Eight years in, and still killing this fashion game. Now a mother, wife, professional-by-day and part-time blogger in between, I still love blogging, producing fashion shoots and curating this blog.
My interests lie in producing high editorial-style content, shooting in grand and unique locations, make-up shoots and doing more studio shoots that really push the boundaries.
I'm open to collaborations and ideas, so please message me.
