Lindsay Lohan Accused of Copying Designs for Her 6126 Line

London Entertainment/Splash News Online; Courtesy 6126

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.

mel on

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.

Robbin on

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*

Silverbleu on

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!

Lindsay Lohan Has a smart mother that has taught
her how to work the room!!

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..

Sam on

I don’t think I can handle another year of more Lindsay Lohan drama. I’m sooo sick of it also.

Avery on

I can’t believe the president of 6126 is defending the sketch of the geometric dress. It is a dead ringer for the dress Lindsay wore. Anyone who can see can attest that the geometric design on the dress is identical shape by shape.

It is an insult for someone of that stature of a company to say the claim is without merit.

meg on

I am sad for her. I really hope that she seeks therapy and tries to get better. As much fun as it is to bash people, we don’t really know them. We have had enough tragic deaths last year that came way too soon.

Heather on

Everyone that’s defending her needs to look at the most incriminating evidence here which is that Lindsay OWNS this piece of clothing that she copied. It’s one thing for a designer to claim they were copied when there are a few similarities but the alleged copier was never photographed in the particular piece of clothing but here’s Lindsay actually wearing the dress in question. In my eyes that’s even more supporting evidence on the side of the accuser. Shame on you, Lindsay, for stealing others’ ideas and attempting to profit on them.

CP on

Yes she is annoying, but don’t you think this is EXACTLY what people would have been saying about Drew Barrymore if we had places to post our opinions back in the 80’s? And look at her now, all clean and sober, making a life for herself and doing well i might add. Lindsay HAD talent back when she was 12… hopefully one day she will sober up and grow up.

After seeing the mess of a fashion show at Ungaro, is anyone surprised that she may have copied someone else’s clothing. The girl has no fashion talent. Most celebrities hire designers to do their fashion lines. Lindsay just steals it.
A class act. I have some advice for Lindsay (not that she’s reading this)-go to rehab for a minimum of 60 days, get rid of the hangers-on and enablers, and have someone that you trust to handle your business. It worked for Britney Spears. Do it before you become washed up or worse yet, DIE!

A on

Hey Sam, then why did you read this?

Suz on

I see a little girl lost, who has not had any boundaries set. I see a little girl lost, whose parents forgort how to be just that. I see a little girl lost.. who has lost her way, with no one to bring her back. I feel badly for this little girl, because no one taught her any better.

Lindsay has to understand that shes not that 15 year old girl that could do soming bad but not get in trouble for it. Im tired of hearing things that are about Lindsay, shes just trying to get all the attention and be all Miss Dramadic. When will she act her age or better yet be an adult. Open your eyes Lindsay you’re an adult trying to be 15 again and this time you’re getting in trouble for it!!!!!

what does a clothing line have to do with the suppoused drug problem she has?Why do you nobody’s even bother to bring that up?This has nothing to do with that what so ever.BacK off.She has talent and for an idiot to say paris hilton is better then her? Are you on drug’s like your claim that Lindsay is?She’s famous for a sex tape.She cant act,sing,or model because of that huge nose she has.Lindsay can do all 3 and she’s just 23.If you want to make sense hold up a valid argument=D

What did you think i could give at this moment with tears in your eyes,, Something I’ll never sing to the one and only D lohan.. now about those stocking the idea was dated back since 1970 around that same time as some famous exhibet’s, it isn’t about the idea she had for the hemmm the pattren was different in the way the linning was done in the embrodery for the stocking, such as the striaght stripe and what appears to be fish net was origional put out to american display by 1920’s dancing girls and the one and one only Monroe cameo’ed in her grey scale pics fimilare to others as black and white and color cast refined now forget the plate I’m talking about, what like Monroe for she what she did she made on her own and so did Lindsay.

amy on

Wow what the heck at these comments? Some of you are downright vile. Just like movies, music, paintings, and photographs, some things resemble others. Nothing in the industry is every 100% original and with all the designs out there, some things look like one another. Its usually a coincidence. This is nothing but blogs going after an easy target like Lindsay. for gods sake, even Marc Jacobs can be considered a copycat if anyone bothered to go hunt down and look for similar items to his designs.

Nia on

I wonder why people keep reading about her if they’re sick of her and hate her that much?are u just jealous or somethin??

shafiu on

yh nia is right.. backoff

Poppy on

I am amazed that people think Lindsey actually sketched the one on the right. I would probably faint if she did anything more that take a look at it, and sign on to say she ‘designed’ it. Isn’t that what most celebrity lines are, anyway?

Stuart Anderson on

I consider it somewhat sad that this discussion has focused more on Lindsay Lohan than on the other two designers who really deserve the airplay under the circumstances.

That said however, as a pattern maker in the fashion industry I can assure you that the issue of copying is far more difficult to establish than one might think from a superficial glance. I wouldn’t have a great deal of difficulty finding examples of both the dress and leggings that predate even those alleged of being copied … so really, where’s the crime? I wrote an article on my blog about how the legal system (at least here in Australia) does the determination process when it comes to alleged copying in the fashion industy. Might not be what you want to hear … but it’s how the system really works.

Loser is you! You made this comment to offend Lindsay and dont know nothing about Linds’s life or career. Jealous. Theft??? Laughing. Do you have a lot of money than Lindsay? Err, one minute, I am going to think! :) You are so shame, fact!

Lindsay Lohan seems so far removed from rtialey that she will publicize her own clothing line on her way to court Sept. 24. The 24-year-old actress wore her 6126 clothing line, sporting a black 6126 blazer, which she also paired with an innocent white skirt and black lacy top. We’ll admit, she looked good — but she dressed more like she was going out to one of her usual night haunts, rather than appearing before the law. Clearly, her promiscuous choice in self-designed clothing didn’t sway the judge…and now she’s in an orange jumpsuit until Oct. 22! Are you going to do what Lindsay can’t, run out and get some of her 6126 court apparel
