Kim Kardashian is over fast fashion companies that rip of original designs and then make it look like she’s partnering with them. The latest target for her ire is Fashion Nova, which managed to crank out a copy of the one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress she wore to the Hollywood Beauty Awards Sunday night.
By the next day, a fake version of the dress popped up on the fashion site.
On Twitter, Kardashian says it’s "devastating" to see brands "rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas."
Kim adds: "I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent."
She continues, sayting that she doesn’t "have any relationships with these sites. I’m not leaking my looks to anyone, and I don’t support what these companies are doing."
While Kim says she’s not in cahoots with the brand, celebs like Cardi B, Amber Rose and others do work with Nova.
Nova responded, telling TMZ: "Fashion Nova is an ultra-fast fashion brand that is capable of executing design within hours and believes in fairness in pricing. We strive to offer our customers affordable leading trends. We respect the fashion community and work with a variety of vendors, designers, influencers and celebrities to keep our style offering fresh and relevant."
The statement continues, "Kim Kardashian-West is one of the top fashion icons in the world that our customers draw inspiration from. However, we have not worked with Kim Kardashian-West directly on any of her projects but have been driven by her influential style."
