Lindsay Lohan Accused of Copying Designs for Her 6126 Line

Looks like Lindsay Lohan‘s hope for a drama-free 2010 is already over. Merely a week after plans to expand her leggings line 6126 into a full fashion line hit the internet — complete with sketches — Lindsay has been accused of copying designs by two separate designers, reports WWD. First, James Lillis, designer of Black Milk Clothing, took to his blog, toomanytights.typepad.com, to point out the similarities between Lindsay’s “Diamond” leggings and his own “Sheer Spartan” leggings — both of which boast a signature triangle cutout at mid-thigh. Next,Fashionista.com labeled Lindsay’s geometric dress as a dead ringer for a Jen Kao dress the star wore only last month — to which designer Jen Kao responded to WWD, saying, “While we are all well aware that being ‘mimicked’ or ‘copied’ has always existed in this industry, I think the evolution of it all has grown to an alarming level. It’s a shame to support the concept of taking advantage of designers who are still trying to develop a name and solidify the image of their design aesthetic.” While Lindsay has yet to respond to the accusations against her, Kristi Kaylor, president of 6126, defended Lindsay and the integrity of her designs to WWD, saying, “The alleged ‘copying’ claims made by these companies are false and have absolutely no merit or validity whatsoever. Any alleged similarities are purely coincidental. The 6126 illustrations for the upcoming fall 2010 collections do not even describe the fabric content, fit or actual construction details of the garments. This is merely an accusation based upon a pencil sketch with no concrete viable evidence to back up the allegations.”

I wish Lindsay would just GO AWAY. I am beyond sick of hearing and reading about her. No talent….her 15 is over. Boycott.

Lindsey is a loser. Squandering her life. All she does is use people, and this is no different. If the girl had any real talent she would focus on acting, but apparently all she has is theft and alcohol. What a shame.

Elle on

I predict she’ll be the next in a growing line of young Hollywood starlet fatalities. She needs a serious wake up call & rehab stint before it’s too late. Such a shame too, she was going places as a child actor.

Yeah Mel, she’s squandering her life alright… I mean that loser going and starting a clothing line, you must do that every day in your sleep. *eye roll*

She should just disappear… I prefer Paris Hilton over her cause Lindsay’s got a talent, but she just doesn’t appreciate it and makes her life a mess; whereas Paris, doesn’t got a talent in the world yet she manages to rise up to the occasion making herself a brand, way better than Lindsay!

kat on

so sad that nobody cares enough for her to get her some serious help .

Joanna on

I’m no big Lindsay fan but to give her credit I actually think her sketch is better than the original she’s wearing.

oinv on

This is sad..She should just take more care of herself..I mean her acting isn’t bad..It’s just all about this lifestyle which will eventually lead her nowhere.

Lee on

Um… I am pretty sure Lindsay wishes people would leave her alone and let her live in peace. she is no our for the attention. I have yet to hear about her being rude or mean to anyone, she is a lost girl who is an addict and we all know people like her. If she passed away I bet just like with brittney murphy all of the fake butt in hollywood would come out with the im sorry and we could have help, and mean as they treat her now. The world is lost everyone in hollywood is screwed up!! Not just her!! Leave her alone jerks..
