Kylie Jenner‘s decision to a wear a knock-off version of a Rihanna dress has caused bad blood to brew between the ladies.
Full story below…
After Rihanna sported the custom-made L’Impasse Couture, she discovered that Dolls House Fashion had created the very same fit for Kylie.
Problematic, as the most important part of the sentence above is custom-made.
Enraged, Couture sent a cease and desist letter to House.
We are the original designers of the jumpsuit, which you can find proof of on our Instagram timeline, where we have posted images [of it] since February, 2016. We designed the jumpsuit in September, 2015, and we actually had fabric made a specific way for this style. We have invoices for this fabric dating back to September 2015. The Lanna Cami Fringe Jumpsuit was officially launched in February 2016, and was added to our website, available for customers to order.
We were originally asked to make the jumpsuit for Rihanna for the VMAs in August 2016 — several months after we had launched the design — and had many fashion bloggers wear it, such as Sydney Fashion Blogger. We have proof that we sent our jumpsuit to Mel Ottenburg’s office [Rihanna’s longtime stylist] via DHL.
As you can see the jumpsuit has very strong design elements, which is signature to our design handwriting. The other dress maker in question has no similar garments before or after, apart from one jumpsuits [sic], which looks to be constructed in a different way.
We are approached by celebrities and stylists for our unique designs and professionalism, and we would never copy other peoples [sic] work, as it is against our work ethics. We have also not been in receipt of any legal letters from the person in question or any other organization.
This isn’t the first time Jenner has been linked to copy cat claims.
