Kim Kardashian West wins $2.8 million from company that kept tagging her in Instagram posts

In February Kardashian West, 38, slammed online fashion retailers for copying her designs and selling cheap versions within hours of her being pictured wearing them.

Kim Kardashian West tweeted: “It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas.

“I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.

“Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it’s not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet.”

Kardashian West said her relationships with designers are “very important to me” and dismissed internet rumours she worked with online fashion outlets to “leak” the clothes to them.

Missguided USA failed to defend itself and a default judgement was made, awarding Kardashian West damages as well as about £47,000 in legal fees, court documents showed.

A ruling delivered at the California Central District Court by Judge Virginia A Phillips added Missguided USA is banned from using Kardashian West’s “trademarks in connection with the sale, marketing or distribution of its products”.
