Hello I'm Clo!
Designer Sophie Webster takes on Nasty Gal
Who would have thought such a sweet and innocent picture of Best Emerging Accessories
Designer Sophie Webster would cause so much controversy?!
Sophie's designs and creativeness are known for being kookie, weird and fresh on the fashion scene. With art elements featuring in her pieces, nature inspired her 2013 collection with her works featuring bees and butterflies. Just have a gander at that models hair - she has antenna!
How about this picture?
Yet again another retailer has been caught out with their copy cat ways.
Vogue wrote on their website this morning :
WEBSTER has accused American high-street retailer Nasty Gal of
copying one of her designs. The British label took to Instagram to
voice its annoyance at the brand for selling a monochrome speech
bubble-shaped clutch bag (featured top right) that looks similar to
The Nasty Gal version, which bears the slogan WTF, is made using
fake leather and costs $48, compared to Webster's calfskin
embroidered clutches which retail at £340 (pictured top left). The
luxury accessories label - which won Best Emerging Accessories
Designer at the 2013 British Fashion Awards - posted an image of
the contentious design on Instagram with the caption: "Nice Try
@NastyGal #COPYCAT #SpeechBubbleClutch #SWHQ".
Shit is going down fashion world! I say go Sophie. It's tough cracking it in the fashion world these days and I too would be pretty miffed if someone ripped off my designs for less than a third of the price.
