MFL Fashion: Derek Lam vs Ivanka Trump
People Magazine reported Ivanka Trump received a cease-and-desist letter from Derek Lam claiming she has seven days to remove her $150 wedged heel shoes off the market. Her design is believed to be a replica of Lam’s wedged heel shoe priced at $750.
The question is, did Ivanka Trump rip-off Derek Lam’s style? Another question is this. How involved is Ivanka Trump when it comes to designs that carry her name? Fashion plagiarism is a sensitive case and Lam will probably sue for damages if this all goes to court so this is definitely an on going story. Fashion plagiarism is a sensitive case.
