Designer Destiney Bleu Accuses Victoria’s Secret Of Attempting To Steal Designs: Stop Stealing From Black Women!
Fashion designer Destiney Bleu has had enough of the clothing industry’s attempt at the erasure of Black women. Having worked with big names like Cardi B, Mary J. Blige, and most recently – Beyonce – Destiney Bleu is known for her crystal and rhinestone-adorned lingerie and accessories from her line, D Bleu Dazzled. According to Destiney’s recent tweets – apparently intimate giant, Victoria’s Secret, allegedly wants in on the goods.
A large order prompted Destiny to look into the customer. She tweeted her findings:
“Got a really big order + my intuition told me to look further into it, so I decided to google the name. Turns out it’s VP of design at major brand… I was excited until I remembered they’ve been caught stealing from several designers. Deciding if I want the smoke or not.”
Recall, Destiney Bleu took reality star Khloe Kardashian to court in 2017 over allegedly stealing a catsuit design for her clothing line, Good American. Khloe Kardashian reportedly issued this statement regarding the court battle:
“My former stylist without my prior knowledge or authorization, brought three catsuits from dbleudazzled to a fitting for me. I was flattered but very surprised that Destiny and dbleudazzled would gift me those items since I happily paid full price for all of the other items I purchased from dbluedazzled. Moreover, harkening back to my days running my small boutique Dash with my sisters, I like supporting small shops and independent designers. Unfortunately, they had already been altered to fit my body, and couldn’t be returned. I never would have ordered the catsuits and had no interest in purchasing them.”
Khloe Kardashian continued:
“When Destiney claimed in June of 2017 that I and Good American somehow copied her catsuit designs for Good American’s line of bodysuits, I was outraged. There is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this claim. As I said, I never showed anyone at Good American samples or photographs of any of the dbluedazzled designs.”
Meanwhile, Destiney Bleu said she’s too fatigued to engage in another expensive, drawn-out lawsuit with a big brand:
“As a sidenote. I didn’t feel like going through the drama of letting VS copy my work because I’m sick of being triggered, I’m sick of the lawsuits, I’m sick of fighting for my life. It’s not healthy for my mental space so I cut that sh*t quick and cancelled it.”
“When you cut out the creator. That is erasure…why are we good enough to steal from but not good enough to collaborate with?”
