Following Aquazzura’s lawsuit against Ivanka Trump that alleges she copied one of its popular designs, Aquazzura’s CEO Jean-Michel Vigneau released an official statement:
“Aquazzura is a young company that puts our heart and soul into our designs. We have brought this suit to protect the integrity of our designs, our hard work and to avoid consumers from being deceived. If a company is allowed to use designs that they did not create which consumers recognize as Aquazzura, then the original designs are compromised. We are confident that the law will not allow the type of copying that we have seen here.”
The design in question bears a striking resemblance to Aquazzura’s “Wild Thing” signature design. The release goes on to say that it “will not tolerate confusing imitations in the marketplace.” Camp Ivanka has yet to respond…stay tuned!
