Dolce & Gabbana Knocks Off Marimekko Design?

A friend sent me a link to this blog The Glam Guide today.. pretty disturbing. Sure there are worse things in the world, but seems pretty shitty to steal another designer's work. Especially when Dolce & Gabbana knows what it's like to have their designs knocked off, why would they do this to someone else?

I thought that stealing unikko/poppy was the ugliest thing that a design powerhouse like D&G can do.

Unfortunately I found something even more arrogant and repulsing act by D&G.

Now they are trying to cancel the regisration of Marimekko's poppy pattern in EU.

Can you imagine!! First they steal the pattern and then they try cancel marimekko's rights of this over 40 years old world famous iconic print pattern.

If you find this as repulsive as I do, please tell it to D&G via their web pages.
