Sydney PR Firm Slams Fashion Label as “Cock-Juggling Thunderc*nts” for Alleged Plagiarism

Fashion designers are often inspired by clothes they’ve seen elsewhere, but it’s generally accepted that crossing the line into plagiarism simply isn’t on. Not only is it bad for the firm which has been copied, it’s harmful to the industry and the livelihoods of those who work and breathe fashion.

As Pedestrian TV reports, Sydney PR firm Mother & Father Publication Relations has taken aim at a fashion label that’s allegedly plagiarised one of its client’s work. The firm says it noticed that a Melbourne designer by the name of Zian Couture has essentially replicated a dress created by a Perth label they represent called Zhivago.

The PR firm has taken to Instagram to speak its mind about Zian Couture’s move to replicate the dress, calling the company “cock-juggling thunder c*nts” for “trying to pass yourselves off as designers, when you are in fact, you are nothing more than a wet shit”. They also completed the post with the hashtags #DontBuyFakes and #ProtectAustralianDesign.

“The post originated from an overwhelming feeling of complete frustration, sometimes I feel like I’m screaming into the abyss,” MFPR director Matthew Jordan told Pedestrian.

“In Australia, there are massive problems with IP protection for designers and it seems like no one is willing to step-up and give independent designers a fighting chance by changing the laws. This issue touches every designer working in the creative industries, not just fashion. It’s also important to note that once anything designer is replicated, it immediately loses it’s ticketed value.”

Check out the comparison between the two dresses and the post in its entirety, below.

 

NOPE! NOPE! NOPE! As an agency, MFPR is at the coalface of Australian fashion, everyday we counsel clients who are battling to keep their dreams and their businesses alive. We witness a never-ending conga-line of shifty arseholes who are squeezing the lifeblood from the Australian design community. So when we see shit like this, it begs the question, how much more blood can be drawn (from independent designers) before we have no industry left? All it would take is a few minor changes to IP laws and independent Australian designers would have greater protection. @ziancouture, you are trying to pass yourselves off as designers, when are in fact, you are nothing more than than a wet shit and no matter how hard you wipe, you’ll be never clean. So to all the cock-juggling thunder c#nts like #ZianCouture, consider this your notice…MFPR is about to summon forth a shitstorm of biblical pain and suffering on your swamp asses! #protectaustraliandesign #dontbuyfakes
