Diane Von Furstenberg Sues Target, Finally!

According to WWD, "Diane von Furstenberg [DVF] filed a copyright infringement lawsuit Thursday against Target. DVF accused the Minneapolis-based retailer of infringing on a fabric design that features spotted frogs. The complaint said Target sold a wrap dress made of a material that was manufactured to look like silk jersey and bearing an animal print that was confusingly similar to the spotted frog. Target stopped selling the dresses online this week, but the goods were still available in stores, the complaint said. DVF implemented a program to protect its intellectual property last year and it has filed a handful of lawsuits since then, including one against Forever 21."
Fashiontary is not surprised and wonders how long it will be before they attack other retailers [not naming names] and designers who have developed very similar dresses. Also, will DVF sue those manufacturing and selling fakes on ebay? Will or can they sue ebay? Stay tuned.
Update: Check out Holy Grail Beauty who had some additional pictures of Target imitating DVF.
