Yeah they look alike but this patern in these colours are popular, I’ve seen so many clothes in this pattern especially miin dresses and two pieces. And like people have said before sm hire’s dedginess to dress then, sm don’t do it themselves. I also think it’s quite unprofessional that she called them out like this without contacting them, Idk maybe it’s just me but I hate it when business owners do that. I’m not really a big red velvet Stan, so I can’t say I’m saying this because I love them. Also I have nothing against the designer just… Read more »

I don’t think people realize how important this is. This is nothing new in the fashion industry, even in the costume industry for stage performances to take inspiration. However, the problem is they’re not a big designer, and as they have said, would’ve jumped at the opportunity to dress RV. That would be huge. Instead, they cheapened out more and got their in-house wardrobe designer to knock off the designs. That’s extremely disappointing that they didn’t even try to reach out and obtain originals or at least get permission/credit/compensation to the designer. There’s some things and trends that become essentially… Read more »

You’d be right if SM was a fashion brand, selling these clothes. But since this is an MV, and SM does not directly profit from the design, hence paris99 has no claim. Furthermore, SM’s stylists probably chose these clothes from an external designer; its this ‘other designer’ that’s at fault, not SM.
Its easy to blame the big dog, but its only right for the little guy, to check first before making very public, defamatory remarks.

You right @Linaaaa.. she just said to SM Town “garments that take heavy “inspiration” from my work. ” She not said they take the whole design from her. In fashion world if u try to copy or take some of idea from their work, u need to ask for permission due credit issue.

I see some comments calling the designer an “Attention Whore,” I can only assume that they are crazy Red Velvet stans… I don’t know who the designer is, but you can’t deny the obvious resemblance between the designers outfits and what RV was wearing. You honestly have to be quite delusional if you believe they are nothing alike. Also, I’m not saying RV stylists did this on purpose or meant harm, but credit should be given where credit is due.. BTW I love Red Velvet and this comeback is great!!! ♡♡♡

side note – the ‘inspired designs’ which rv wore are 100x better than the original. sad but the smaller check design looks classy while the original is ….

Sure they are alike, but is SM selling these clothes? They probably got them from another designer. Its that other designer who’s liable, not SM.
Its no different from you buying something off the rack, and posting on Instagram. If it happens those clothes bore resemblance to another label – should you be sued?
Better to figure who’s liable first.
