I’ve met a whole lot of designers over the years, and while your tastes may differ greatly, you all agree on this one thing: it’s no use fighting the big sharks once they’ve decided to poach your design. Well, you’re wrong. Being copied as a designer has become more common than ever, but how do you prevent a company from stealing your designs?
It’s a nasty world out there and your nice new design might just be eaten up by a large-scale fashion factory, ending up in high-street shops all over the globe, sometimes even before your own collection has hit the stores. Last year alone, several cases of such blatant chicanery were uncovered by the media.
