Dunnes Stores Savida - Lipsy?

I recently bought a cardi in Savida in Dunnes.
I now see the same one on the Lipsy website.



There's also a skirt on the Lipsy website which looks identical to one in Savida, as well as a dress I was sure I saw there.

Dunnes recently got in trouble for copying Karen Millen, are they at it again?

Feck it, Penneys copy all the Highstreet stores, I love Dunne's Savida Range. How did that all finish with Karen Millen in the end?

The Savida one looks different enough to the Lipsy one to get away with. There's a dress that New Look have as well as Savida...not sure who's copying who. Kate Moss dress in green- Savida version in black.

Hopefully. Lets all keep really quiet about it in the hope they won't be forced to stop

Love that cardigan by the way... how much was it ?

I've actually seen a lot of things in New Look that are the same as Savida. Savida can be a little more expensive but it looks better quality, some of New Look's clothes have a 'cheap' look to them.

I used to work in Miss Selfridge/ Topshop and sometimes the same skirts and tops would appear in Pennys.
The same stuff in New Look is in Lipsy most times too also
Everyone does it believe me,
It pays to shop around and not just only in the expensive reputable places, the quality is only better approx half the time

Yeah it's kinda bugging me now that I see the same things everywhere and worst of all i don't like any of it!!


I'm sick of seeing those black dresses with the wide circular neckline (i think they're meant to be grecian look) with the kind of black jewel/shiny button type things around the neckline

all the stuff seems to be the same

my friends a fashion designer and was telling me about this. Theres a certain amount of things you need to change in an original design in order for it to be yours ( I think its 5). |These can be very subtle changes such as different fabric, different shade of color etc so they get away with it - hell my friend gets sent to paris by work to look at designs for next season (and change a few things!).

Hate these too! They're so unflattering
