Yoko Ono Ordered to Pay Off Brooklyn Designer After Lawsuit
Looks like the famous artist's wacky designs weren't so original after all.
Brooklyn Designer Accuses Yoko Ono and Opening Ceremony of Copying Her Designs
Yoko Ono's menswear collection for Opening Ceremony was... a lot of things. Wacky? Sure. Difficult to pull off? Definitely. But, unoriginal? That seemed unlikely. However, Brooklyn-based designer Haleh Nematzadeh thought Ono's designs looked a little too familiar. She's gone so far as to file a lawsuit against Ono this past Friday, claiming the 80-year-old artist conspired with Opening Ceremony to steal her designs.
