By browsing the web I found an article saying that fashion brand Zara copied one independent artist’s work. How disgraceful. The artist, Bassen, is describing how difficult it was for her to defend her work. To be an independent artist is hard enough and I wont expect brand like Zara to be stealing from others. They are employing about 600 designers; one of them maybe run out of inspiration and just browsed the web until he found what he was looking for.
Maybe the big companies should be considering who are they employing, I presume that the one designer has more money then the pure independent artist.
I am just hoping that Bassen get some compensation. Here is a link to the full article if someone would like to have a look: https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2016/jul/21/zara-accused-copying-artist-designs-fashion
