this series has been running for a while now in fashionista.com and i had been hooked.

there's this, most budget stores are now downright copying designs of high end designers straight from the runway. of course, stores like gap, urban outfitters and forever 21 are completely denying this allegations, as they claim that they are merely getting inspirations from runway looks.

errr... do you agree? see for yourself!

L: Anna Sui's candy-striped dress for Spring '07, worth $200
R: Forever 21's inspired one for $17.80

now, this one is not even copied from a runway...

Left: Forever 21's own blouse for $27

Right: Diane Von Furstenberg's print retails for $180. Diane is already suing Forever 21 for reproducing her prints.
Left: Forever 21's print goes for $24.80

Why you buy a $1200 Versace dress (R) when you can buy the same print at Bebe (L)?
