Fashion Nova Responds To Kim Kardashian Following Knockoff Rant

Fashion Nova Responds To Kim Kardashian Following Knockoff Rant

Shoppers looking for the prefect trendy outfit know Fashion Nova is the place go. As many of us know, the brand often replicates the hottest styles seen on our favorite celebrities and sells them for an affordable price. While it’s perfect for people who want to look their best without breaking their bank, it’s becoming a problem for celebs and designers.

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter/Instagram Tuesday morning to share how disappointed she was at brands like Fashion Nova for replicating designs seen on her. There was also a rumor circulating that the reality star was partnering with the brand as apart of their launch of a pre-sale for the replica of the vintage Mugler dress she recently wore, but she also shut down that rumor in her rant.

“It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas. 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.”

Kim went on to say,

“Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it’s not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet. This is a way to get people to sign up for their mailing list and make people believe there is some kind of relationship between me and this fashion site. There is not.”

Before concluding she added,

“My relationships with designers are very important to me. It’s taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life. So, as always, don’t believe everything you read and see online. I don’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.”

Fashion Nova has released a statement saying that they meant no harm by recreating pieces seen on Kim or other celebrities. They also make it clear that she was not a part of any launch.

“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.”
