Plagiarism: Designer Jeremy Scott

Hey guys!

I’m sure most of my fellow artists have experienced times when they felt as if their work has been copied and “ripped off” and it’s extremely frustrating. What’s even more frustrating is when you’re faced with straight up plagiarism.

Today one of my awesome followers alerted me that designer Jeremy Scott had stolen one of my designs for his Spring 2017 collection.

It’s extremely disheartening and upsetting when such a big NYFW designer steals my intellectual property and profits from the design while claiming it’s his.

I’ve been busting my ass for my passion for years. 2016 has been a huge year for me. I was given the amazing opportunity to be and Artist-In-Residence at RedBubble for six months and now I’m back home in Colorado. Since finishing up the residency for the first time in my life I am able to focus on my passion and my business full-time and try to make my dreams happen before my money runs out.

Did Jeremy Scott even consider that maybe I wanted to collaborate with him? I am a fan of Jeremy Scott and Moschino, and I would have loved an opportunity to work with him. Did he consider that he could have licensed or purchased the design from me? Let’s face it, he could afford me.

This man has a reputation of plagiarizing other artists artwork and has faced litigation from artist Rimes, Nikki Lipstick and Jimbo Phillips. He does not learn from his past transgressions, and he doesn’t care.

The problem is, I can’t afford a lawyer. The best I can do is raise awareness and protect my artwork. If you’d be willing to help, please go to my Facebook page:
