COPY/ PASTE IN THE FASHION BUSINESS
To be able to create something new is a gift, but to be able to copy it elegantly is a talent. However in the fashion business, this talent has one and only name – a theft. This “skill” had long ago transformed in a profitable business for milliards, but unfortunately these incomes don’t enter in the right money-box. Look who and how make use of the ideas of the famous fashion houses and designers and sells the copies at almost ten times lower prices.
