Santa Maria Tlahuitoltepec

An indigenous community is considering legal action against Isabel Marant after a blouse in her collection showed similarities to their traditional costume.

A blouse from Marant’s Etoile collection has been singled out by the community of Santa Maria Tlahuitoltepec, which believes it bears striking resemblance to their traditional costume. In a solemn press conference last week they stated: “Isabel Marant is committing a plagiarism because the Etoile spring-summer 2015 collection contains the graphical elements specific to the Tlahuitoltepec blouse, a design which has transcended borders, and is not a novel creation as is affirmed by the designer.” They are now asking for reparation damages from the designer and are looking into the possibility of taking up legal action.
