BRANDY MELVILLE EXPLOITS EMERGING ARTISTS:
A little background on Brandy Melville’s “elin moon tears embroidery top”.. it’s very popular, has been seen on numerous celebs and is available in twenty stores across 10 countries. What you may not know is that the design for this tee was copied from me - an emerging artist trying to make a name for herself in Tasmania, Australia.
After contacting Brandy Melville I was confident that the issue would get resolved. However after months of chasing them for a resolution, all the while having faith in their professionalism, I must out them as a company that is making profit from someone else’s hard work and creative thinking - while no credit or financial compensation has been provided.
I can only fight back in the small ways that I can -
PLEASE SHARE AND LET BRANDY MELVILLE KNOW THAT NO MATTER HOW “SMALL” AN ARTIST MAY BE, THEY CAN NOT GET AWAY WITH INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT
