Cara Delevingne’s recent “The Future Is Female” crewneck sweater, as reported upon earlier, is facing some trouble due to allegations of plagiarism. Based off of a ’70s feminism slogan, the original “The Future Is Female” design was made for the first women’s bookstore in NYC called Labyris Books and was recreated by LA design studio Otherwild. While Otherwild’s recreation was made with permission, it seems Delevingne copied the authorized remake and neglected all regards to any legal ramifications and should thus credit Otherwild since her own sweater was sourced from them. See below for the screenshot accusation, which has since been deleted from the account.
“It appears that Cara Delevingne @caradelevingne decided to rip-off #Otherwild without permission or notice and is making #thefutureisfemale items herself. She has not informed her 20mil+ followers that she got the #thefutureisfemale sweatshirt from Otherwild even though there was an article in the NY Times about her receiving it from her girlfriend St. Vincent from OW just 2 weeks ago. [...] No politics, ethics or regard for the legal tenets, No sense of shame. No regard for feminist, queer-owned small business. This is how you support a cause? This is not the female future.”
