Indie Designer Accuses Khloé Kardashian of ‘Copying’ Bodysuits, Side-by-Side Gives Accusation Weight

Khloé Kardashian is on the hot seat after an independent designer accused her of stealing her designs, which Kardashian has denied through her company.

Last week the reality TV star tweeted a campaign video for her Good American clothing brand with some designs that looked eerily similar to DBleuDazzled, prompting its founder  Destiney Bleu Lewis to accuse Kardashian of ripping off her designs.

“Under no circumstances did Good American or Khloé Kardashian infringe on another brand’s intellectual property,” the company wrote in a statement to Cosmopolitan, noting it is “going through the proper legal channels to handle the situation.”

Lewis, who said she has “lawyered up,” has created costumes for Beyoncé, CeeLo Green and Major Lazer to name a few, including bejeweled bodysuits, such as those worn by Bey during her Formation World Tour.

In a lengthy series of tweets, Lewis explained she initially was excited to work with Kardashian in December to design a custom Cleveland Cavaliers jersey.

Last week, she was contacted by Good American to create a bodysuit, which Lewis was hesitant to do, and now, the designer is refusing to stay silent about the situation.

Lewis, who makes everything by hand for her company of five employees, got lots of support online.

Kardashian, on the other, caught mostly flak.

Lewis said she’s learned a couple of lessons from exposing Kardashian.
