Designer Copycats: A.F. Vandevorst Rips Off Christian Dior Couture (Forum Buzz)

Whether it’s Zara knocking off Céline (and just about everyone else), or everyone knocking off everyone, there’s a whole lot of borrowing, stealing, or should we just say “inspiration” in the fashion game. TheFashionSpot forum members are especially adept at seeking out those noteworthy copycat moments that make you shake your head and just kind of say “WTF” to yourself — and I’m going to help spread the word. 

Here, Koibito called out a Fall 2013 A.F. Vandevorst creation that seems to have been heavily inspired by one of the closing ensembles in Raf Simons’ Fall 2012 Couture collection (the designer's debut) for Christian Dior

Sure, there are a few differences from the colors to the materials and the styling, but the essence of the look can’t be ignored. The seams in the pants. The cups of the fitted strapless top that trails behind the model. A.F. Vandevorst totally ripped off Dior.
