16 Times Fashion Nova Was Slammed For Ripping Off Its Designs
The Cardi Party Ruched Dress
Fashion Nova has an extremely public partnership with Cardi B, but that doesn’t give them creative ownership of everything the rapper has ever worn. They might try to sneak around when they draw “inspiration” from black designers, but they were *very* upfront with this Christian Siriano recreation, including a side-by-side of their product and Cardi’s SNL appearance on their listing. Cosmo reported that Christian said the recreation was “not ideal” because it could affect his business but still flattering to the designer. That’s a pretty chill way to look at it, but Christian and Fashion Nova have very different consumer demographics, so he’s probably not as concerned as the up-and-coming designers that Fashion Nova has lurked on in the past.
