Dead Lotus Couture’s Nange Magro said she was ‘deeply disappointed’ at similarity between her latex designs and those worn by Monáe
A London-based fashion designer has said her costume designs have been plagiarised for Janelle Monáe’s Grammy awards performance on Sunday.
Nange Magro, a Japanese-Italian designer who works primarily with latex, posted images on Instagram comparing designs she made in 2015 for her label Dead Lotus Couture with those worn by Monáe on stage at the Grammys. Magro wrote:
Amazing performance by Janelle at the Grammys. She and her dancers looked great. I’m deeply DISAPPOINTED, though, that their outfits looked so much like one of Dead Lotus Couture’s 2015 classic designs. I could’ve made it for them if they contacted me. Nobody likes to see unauthorised copies of their original creations – be it in music, art or fashion. I am flattered to be an inspiration for this amazing artist, but not flattered that my original design has been blatantly imitated.
