"I'm not trying to steal someone's work" - Designer speaks on Tubo recreation
Dress recreations are some of the common trends we see in fashion today. Many a time, fashion enthusiasts replicate designs donned by either celebrities or looks created by top fashion designers.
These recreations are often done for either commercial purposes or as a homage to the original designer/celebrity fashionista.
The latter appears to be the case for a growing fashion house identified as Damian's Couture who unveiled her attempt at recreating Tubo's 'High Tea' jumpsuit in a series of photos and videos.
However, the response she got from Tubo was less than encouraging as she soon found out she was blocked by the celebrity designer.
