Osman's dress (left) compared to Beckham's (right)
Young London designer Osman Yousefzada found himself fielding questions to whether or not he thinks UK tabloid staple and designer Victoria Beckham copied his design.
Osman first showed his wrapped column dress with internal corset in his Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 collection. In February, Beckham showed a very similar dress, not to mention the dresses are actually both a shade of blue. Osman even noted that Beckham borrowed the dress from his collection and then returned it without buying it. Even with all this evidence, he is actually flattered by the copying.
"A lot of people have mentioned the similarity to me and of course it is very flattering," Osman told Vogue UK. "It is very flattering to think she may have tried my dress and been inspired to create something similar, since it means she must have liked the way the dress was cut and the way it felt to wear."
Will being nice pay off for this young designer? Stay tuned…
