Khloe Kardashian has been accused of copying designs from an indie fashion label and the designer has receipts to back up her claim.
Khloe is the founder of Good American, a denim-based fashion label. They recently put out a lookbook and a designer named Destiney Bleu found that the designs looked very familiar. She’s specifically referring to the bedazzled bodysuits, jerseys and lingerie that Good American are peddling.
In a series of tweets, Bleu outlined that Kardashian ordered pieces from her online shop but never wore them in public. Bleu told Refinery 29 and provided evidence that in November 2016, Khloe’s assistant reached out to her and requested a lookbook. Soon after, Bleu claims, Khloe ordered a pair of bedazzled fishnets stockings and a custom jersey.
Based on the correspondence provided by Bleu, it looks like Kardashian also subsequently made a $925 order of 12 items and a $1,560 order of 16 items which included items like a pair of bedazzled briefs which said Tristan Thompson. Khloe and basketball player Tristan Thompson are currently dating.
According to Refinery 29, the emails Bleu provided also show that Khloe’s former stylist Monica Rose asked to borrow some of Destiney’s rose and black bedazzled bodysuits and bras. Destiney claims that in April, she saw a photo of Khloe wearing a very similar bodysuit design on the set of the Good American campaign shoot. She says that she reached out to the Good American team but did not hear back from them about her concerns.
Khloe isn’t the only member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan who has been accused of stealing designs.
Plugged NYC recently claimed that Kylie ripped off their camouflage designs for her collection on her new fashion outlet, The Kylie Shop.
As Fashion Law reports, in a now expired Instagram story, Plugged NYC provided screenshots showing that they had gotten orders from Kylie’s camp before Kylie’s camouflage outfits were released to the public.
According to Refinery 29, Khloe’s people sent Destiney a cease and desist letter insisting that the Good American designs are not stolen and that they are “inspired by the 1990’s [sic] and are evocative of clothing worn by Cher and others at that time.” They also stated that Khloe had never heard of Destiney or her designs.
Good American put out a press statement standing by the initial claim that they had never heard of Destiney.
“Ms Bleu’s claim that Good American and Khloe Kardashian copied or stole her designs is flagrantly false and little more than a cheap publicity stunt and an attempt by Ms Bleu to get her 15 minutes of fame. Ms. Bleu did not create the concept or design of a bodysuit with crystals – a fashion style that has been around for decades as evidenced by the fact that Cher has been wearing these styles for over 25 years. The Good American design team designed a range of eleven bodysuits and had never heard of Ms. Bleu or seen her designs. The letter from her lawyer — sent to the press for no legitimate reason — is outrageous, defamatory and misleading in the extreme. Good American will absolutely not stand for anyone trying to damage its reputation and plans to deal with this through the proper legal channels.”
