is just going too far. I can understand that a designer may feel cheated when
he slogs to create a new dress which sells at $2000 and then somebody makes a
knock-off and sells tons of those for $200 a pop. Nonetheless, fashion has too much cross-pollination going on for anybody to be able to draw a thick line between
"copied" and "inspired by". Heck, Yves St. Laurent sued Ralph Lauren for
copying, as the article mentions.
