16 Times Fashion Nova Was Slammed For Ripping Off Its Designs
The “Always Love” Hoodie
Los Angeles-based retailer Riot Society tried to play nice by sending the fast fashion giant a cease-and-desist letter after noticing that Fashion Nova’s “Always Love” designs were nearly identical to Riot Society’s “Panda Rose” graphics, but when Fashion Nova ignored their initial complaint, Riot Society filed a lawsuit against Fashion Nova. The suit seeks $150,000 per copyright infringement plus profits made from Fashion Nova’s use of their designs. There hasn’t been a public update on the suit since it was filed in December 2018, and the offending hoodie is still for sale on Fashion Nova’s website, so we’re assuming it didn’t go too well.
