Lindsay Lohan accused of stealing fashion designs

While Lindsay Lohan’s busy accusing her former best friend Patrick Aufdenkamp of sstealing the designs to her upcoming 6126 clothing line, it turns out she might be guilty of design theft herself. WWD reports:

Only days after WWD published exclusive sketches of Lohan’s expanded 6126 apparel line, fashion blogs were abuzz with accusations of design copying. James Lillis, designer of Black Milk Clothing, honed in on the similarities between Lohan’s “Diamond” leggings — which feature a signature triangle cutout at midthigh — and his own “Sheer Spartans.” Lillis took to his blog (toomanytights.typepad.com) in a huff, posting photos of the two designs side-by-side and writing on his blog, “Caught a sneak peek at the new stuff from Lindsay Lohan’s brand 6126…No way…Sucks to be me!!!”
On Wednesday, style blog fashionista.com alleged another design copy. The look in question is a geometrically patterned “Deserve” dress from the 6126 line, which bears a resemblance to a Jen Kao design from her spring collection. A photo from last year shows Lohan wearing the Kao dress in question. Kao said Wednesday, “While we are all well aware that being ‘mimicked’ or ‘copied’ has always existed in this industry, I think the evolution of it all has grown to an alarming level. It’s a shame to support the concept of taking advantage of designers who are still trying to develop a name and solidify the image of their design aesthetic.”

While I just assumed Lindsay laid on the floor in a heroin stupor as real designers did all the work for her fashion line, I gotta admit I’m actually impressed she took the time to steal the designs herself and pass them off as her own. Who knew she had any type of initiative outside of eventually selling Ali into white slavery for a crack rock the size of an oven? Never would’ve called that one.
