Hey tumblr. I know i don’t have many followers, so this probably won’t get much attention, but a shop you may know of, @/soaestheticshop has been continuously plagiarizing from @/kokopieshop, including stealing their original artwork and model photos. Yes, you heard me right. They even stole kokopies original modelling photos.
As a popular shop, with dozens of instagram famous people supporting and promoting them, this kind of stuff goes unnoticed. There were even people defending so aesthetic shop, saying that they love their clothes and will continue to buy from them, or proclaiming that so aesthetic could be unaware that their designs were plagiarized. It’s straight up gross. This kind of behavior should not be defended.
So aesthetic has done this numerous times. Stealing designs from smaller shops, using cheaper, easily breakable materials and overpricing them. This is practically scamming. They are not only robbing small store owners of their original designs, but stealing peoples money by overpricing their unoriginal designs.
If you see this, please reblog it. Don’t let so aesthetic shop get away with this. I may not have many followers, but if you guys help spread this we can hopefully boycott this store and warn people about it.
Also, if you notice any other designs from so aesthetic shop that you’ve seen before, please inform the original designer so that they can take action against it.
Thank you for reading.
