What clearly justices two design pieces created by two distinct designers, is it patterns, cuts, aesthetics, fabric, theme, etc?
Is it right for one designer to recreate another's design or basically just copy the design?
This is no cue to disregard the amount of effort that's been invested into building a brand and creating clothes in a tricky economy but as much as creating clothes that meet international standard is concerned, it doesn't mean making an exact duplicate of a top brand’s, (like Dolce & Gabbana) piece .....Common! It's despicable.
for US Vogue July 2010
This is an observation that I believe calls for caution, correction, reprove, etc. One, two more pieces from this collection come off quite similar with few designer brands in Nigeria .... but one step at a time.
