IT’S TIME TO START CALLING OUT DESIGN CHORS
It is just so easy for baby brands to copy the designs of someone successful and start selling. Just change the tag, and you’re good to go - how unprofessional and immature behaviour is this. It also shatters the image of the brand.
Our feed is full of beautiful designs copied by some amateur brands, and it hurts to see the original designers suffer. Plagiarising someone’s hard work and showcasing it as your own is the lowest level someone can go. If you can’t use your brain and come up with ideas of your own, why do you start something? Just because everyone is starting their own business, it’s not mandatory to copy them and start something of your own if you can’t handle it.
Our very own exceptional designer, Zara Shahjahan also suffered being a victim of plagiarism and she used her Instagram to lay out frustration in a modest manner without calling anyone out:
She wrote in her Instagram story, “Please, please. Stop, copying me. Honestly, you guys are very talented and if you really put pressure on your brains, I promise you can come up with amazing ideas.”
Zara has designed for top Pakistani celebrities including Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari’s wedding outfit. Many designers and brands have been found copying Zara Shahjahan’s designs and prints with a slight difference.
