lealorali:  If I were a designer I would be suing them too. It’s one thing to copy a dress and knowingly  sell it as a replica. It’s quite another to sell a”Maggie Sottero___” for $119.95.

There have been posts here from brides who honestly thought they had found the bargain of the century.

All they have to do is make one or two minot changed to the design for it to be a new design and stop using photos of the brand name dresses to advertise their dresses.  I suspect the photos are going to be the biggest issue.

I have to agree this is a good thing.  If you’re taking inspiration from a range of different gowns that’s one thing but a direct replica copy is essentially a copyright issue, isn’t it?  (I’ve felt this way for a long time but avoided posting as such for fear of upsetting anyone – jumping off the deep end).

Yes wedding dresses are hella expensive… but does that justify stealing someone’s design?
