I can't stand copycats. I am tired of entering Zara and being surrounded by an army of racks filled with copies. I pity those designers who worked for the high street companies, because they are forced to reproduce looks straight from the runway. I can't even understand why they hire designers.
When I read something like: "The democratization of fashion", I can't help, but laugh. What exactly do they mean with democratization? Do I need to feel grateful -with irony- to the good Gods of fashion, that allow us, the poor and mediocre common people, to buy copies of the real things? I don't give a mer(de)* for that lack of creativity.
And now Victoria Secret gets into the act.
Seriously, does Victoria Secret expect to increase their sales with this?
