Fashion Designers Usually Better Off Not Accusing Each Other Of Stealing Designs

Vena Cava accuses Alice + Olivia of ripping them off. But there really are no new ideas.

Vena Cava, an indie label that was on the brink of going under in 2011, took to Instagram to accuse Alice + Olivia of copying one of their prints. Alice + Olivia is a much bigger label with a lot more capital that sells its goods in more than 800 locations across 50 countries. It might seem easy to go after a big label — except the accusation seems fairly unfounded.
