Last week, we busted Target for blatantly mimicking one of Diane von Furstenberg's best known patterns (and on a wrap dress, for shame.) Now, Business Week reports that Diane von Furstenberg herself is suing Target for the copyright infringement, charging that Target's copies "nearly identically copy the scale, pattern and colorways of DVF's Spotted Frog Design," and that the shape of the copies are purposefully " 'wrap' dresses made of materials designed to look like silk jersey, a style consumers and the general public have come to associate with DVF." We guess Target's designers don't have any friends at Forever 21. At least they could have given them the warning: The inimitable DVF does not mess around.
