It seems these days that larger and more well known designers/brands lack creativity and believe they’re able to get away with stealing from smaller designers thinking no one will know. Well the jokes on them because just like them, these designers have built up a following and are well known in their own right and community and deserve to be treated as such. Just like Oyemwen, I knew instantly where the designs originated from, because I am apart of the community she has built. Like the saying goes, someone is always watching, so do the right thing.
So the question still remains, is copying still the highest form of flattery? I do believe that ship has sailed.
