The popular British fashion house recently posted on their Instagram account apologizing for stealing the graphics of two young designers.
Vivienne Westwood has based T-shirts in its Fall 2018 collection on the creations of two young designers, named Louise Gray and Rottingdean Bazaar.
The London house, which took Anthony Knight to court in 2012 for trademark and copyright infringement for copying some of Westwood’s famous punk orb logos and slogans, posted the following apology followed by the image of the original Rottingdean Bazaar T-shirt and the copied design side by side.
Dear @louisegray__ and @rottingdeanbazaar. We are sorry. The use of your graphics on our t-shirt was only ever meant to be a celebration of your work. We got caught up in a last minute frenzy and did not contact you to ask for your permission. We are truly sorry about this mistake and want to make it up to you.
