Just the other day, I was checking my emails and stumbled upon an email that grabbed my attention. “All NEW Goodiez Just Dropped,” the subject read. Now I was uber excited to see what new goodies had dropped, because I had been stalking this one pair of shoes and just praying, wishing and hoping they came back in stock. I clicked into the email and a bright guava dress instantly caught my eye. Although, the reason it caught my eye wasn’t because it was “New AF” as the email suggested, but because the dress looked very familiar. So of course, I immediately click into the email to confirm my thoughts. I begin browsing through the newly dropped collection eager to see more in hopes to see the designer I was familiar with attached to the line. Eagerness immediately turned to disappointment and to no surprise, I instead found items that were a clear knock off of the ones I expected to see. Not one, not two but the entire collection was poorly made replicas of one of my favorite Instagram designers, Oyemwen. This however wasn’t the first time this has happened and sad to say, I’m sure it won’t be the last.
