There is a long history of high fashion brands suing lower fast-fashion brands (Zara, Urban Outfitters, etc.) for ripping off their designs. The trend is particularly disastrous to those big companies, who display their designs on a runway months before they will ever be available to purchase in a brick-and-mortar store or online. On the other hand, fast-fashion labels can look directly to runway shows and immediately produce ripoffs that can be on their shelves within weeks.
