somebody PLEASE tell me the difference!? this shizz can't be right - or legal! the jonathan saunders original on thandie newton probably costs hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. the forever 21 knockoff on the right is only $22.50. so.....which would you buy?
same thing here! the top shop one on the right is under $50, while the kenneth jay lane original is about $220. geeze! thanks to fashionista.com for photos!
worldwide - blaynista's, honestly? my heart goes out to designers. it's patently unfair that their hard work can be so easily ripped off by mass retailers like top shop and forever 21. but what may be bad for that select group of professionals is utterly perfect for budget-wise fashionistas. i was researching a story i saw on fashionista.com, when i decided to check out forever21's website. (www.forever21.com). first of all, for a very cheap/mass store their website is brilliant. it's actually brilliant period. it's very user friendly, shows off their entire collection in a fun way and just makes you lust after their sexy summer dresses - like the EXACT copy of a jonathan saunders dress above. wow....no shame.
