Kim Kardashian Accused Of Plagiarising High Fashion Brands

Kim Kardashian and North WestGC Images

As the design was not made for children, it seemed cute enough at the time, but now that Kim stands to make money off of her numerous replications, the game has certainly changed.

Similarities were first noticed by the Instagram account Diet Prada, which regularly posts images of designer knockoffs. Gvasalia is a long-time friend of Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, and the dress' design is named after him ('The Demna').

'AND that one-of-a-kind custom sequin @vetements_official dress made specially for North, Great message for the little ones!' it continued. The names of the pieces were intended as a nod to the designers who inspired the pieces.

The account started the slideshow post with the title card "Kim des Garcons".

The children's black jacket with an eagle and "live free with strong will" was alongside the original Comme des Garçons jacket designed by Kawakubo.

But Page Six is told that the pieces in question were intended as an "homage" to the designers and that they had always meant to donate the profits from those items to charity because they're "using another designer's work".

'The idea behind Kids Supply is to give people the opportunity to purchase things that would never be available for children otherwise.

You might recognize the silver dress from Kim and North West's matching mommy-and-me moment last September. We have been collecting for years and have archive of them. A spokesperson for the brand told Page Six that the looks were an "homage" to the designers, noting that the pieces will be named the "Rei" bomber and "Demna" dress out of "utmost respect" for the pair.

The only good thing about all of this is that 100 percent of the proceeds of the jacket and sequin dress would be going to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, so homage or cover-up, at least some kids are getting helped in the process.
