Terribly Zara



An ongoing dispute between LA-based illustrator Tuesday Bassen and Spanish clothing company Zara, which initially peremptorily rejected claims that its stores had blatantly plagiarised four of Bassen’s designs. 

Zara has since removed the items from sale and are ‘ in contact with Bassen’s lawyers to clarify and resolve the situation as quickly as possible’

    such a condescending tone to Zara’s email – basically saying “we’re too busy for little artists like you”

    It is totally plagiarism. Another win for the huge business with an army of lawyers.

      ‘Another win for the huge business’ Ffs read the article you lazy muppet. They gave in. The designer’s going to get paid huge compo in all likelihood

        I did read the article. Where does it say that she’s going to get a huge payout you muppet? A lot of times these cases get crushed in the courts due to massive teams of lawyers.

        From the end of the article, ‘In an additional Instagram post today, Bassen said that she had “not heard from @Zara and plans to pursue this further.”‘

    “Because you’re small and relatively unknown, that makes it okay for us to steal your stuff”
