When it comes to the most iconic dresses of the century, Jennifer Lopez’s Grammy Awards dress is at the top of the list. The singer and actress rocked a green designers dress by Versace to the event in 2000 and everyone was flawed. The dress left nothing to the imagination as the singer’s cleavages were on display. She rocked this amazing outfit with a ponytail and clip-on earrings to go. It is clear that Versace wanted to make a statement at the awards ceremony and they found the perfect muse for that.
J.Lo not only looking dazzling in the dress, but her light and gorgeous make-up also took everyone’s breath away. The attention that this dress got at the ceremony and on social media was everything the designing company expected, however, some challenges surfaced when Fashion Nova decided to recreate the dress in their own style. Versace not only saw this act as daring but also as an affront on the hard work they had put into the dress. To make Fashion Nova pay for this act of negligence, Versace filed a law suit against the company.
This complaint was filed in a federal court situated in New York City, and it accused Fashion Nova of copying and remaking the dress that they had made for Lopez. Under the fashion law, Versace is within its rights to sue Fashion Nova for imitating its designs and this can get ugly in a law court. People have often claimed that Fashion Nova was used to copying iconic designs and recreating them in special ways, but this time around, they will be answering to a judge.
Versace went on to include it its reports that the opposing design company, has in the past manufactured several designs without getting permission from the initial designers, and this made many customers confused and upset. They also claimed that these acts by Fashion Nova has succeeded in damaging property rights of these designers. Aside from the “Jungle Print” design that Fashion Nova is being sued for imitating, Versace also disclosed that Fashion Nova once copied its “Pop Hearts” and “Greca” link patterns in the past.
