Just days after Lindsay Lohan accused her longtime best friend Patrick “Pootie” Aufdenkamp of stealing sketches for her 6126 clothing line, several fashion designers have claimed the Mean Girls star has copied their ideas.
James Lillis, designer of Black Milk Clothing, pointed out the similarities between Lindsay’s “Diamond” leggings — which feature a mid-thigh triangle cut-out — and his own “Sheer Spartans.”
Lillis posted photos of the two designs side-by-side on his blog under the headline, “You’ve Got to be Kidding me…”. He writes: “Caught a sneak peek at the new stuff from Lindsay Lohan’s brand 6126…No way…Sucks to be me!!!”
Meanwhile, on Wednesday the style blog, fashionista.com, alleged another design copy. The Web site points out the close resemblance that Lindsay’s “Deserve” dress shares with a Jen Kao design.
Jen Kao said yesterday, “while we are all well aware that being ‘mimicked’ or ‘copied’ has always existed in this industry, I think the evolution of it all has grown to an alarming level.
“It’s a shame to support the concept of taking advantage of designers who are still trying to develop a name and solidify the image of their design aesthetic.”
