Balenciaga did it first
Yes, Nicolas Ghesquière is leaving Balenciaga.
The end of an era which is sad, but true.
Nicolas was one of the most acclaimed and recognizable designers over the past decade who successfully revived the dusty brand Balenciaga.
But this is not the topic of my today's post: it's plagiarism.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
I came across this tumblr Balenciaga did it first where you can see how Givenchy or Vionnet searched and obviously found their inspiration in Balenciaga designs.
Copyrights vs. Copycats? Inspiration od shameless imitation? It's up to you to decide...
