Kate Middleton in wedding dress
Around the wedding dress Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge married Prince William in 2011 (and which created such a furor) was suddenly a scandal. Designer Christine Kendall argues that the design of the dress, known as the work of the hands of the creative Director of Alexander McQueen Sarah Burton, was stolen from her!
Little-known British fashion designer from Hertfordshire, has filed a lawsuit against fashion House Alexander McQueen, accusing him of plagiarism. She argues that the design of the dress was stolen from her by Alexander McQueen (who died in early 2010).
As evidence the plaintiff uses his own sketches, and a letter of thanks from Buckingham Palace, explaining that she had forwarded his version of the wedding dress design Kate Middleton at Clarence house on their own initiative. Now, in addition to protect their intellectual property and copyright Christine Kendall fashion House requires compensation in the amount of 500 000 pounds, nearly 725 thousand dollars.
Sarah Burton, in turn, accusations of plagiarism rejects. In the end, if this is true, why Christine Kendall harbored a grudge for five years and never went to court immediately? Or she’s just another fame seeker?
