Shweta Bachchan Nanda, daughter of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, recently launched her own fashion label with ace designer Monisha Jaising and named it MXS.
Many Bollywood celebs, including Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif and Karan Johar have showered love on Shweta’s label and wished her luck, and the launch event was also a star-studded affair.
However, two days after the official launch, the brand is being accused of plagiarism. Instagram account Diet Sabya, which regularly calls out designer imitations, brand copies and plagiarism when it comes to fashion designs, posted a photo of a sweatshirt from Shweta’s brand, which looks dramatically similar to another from a lesser-known American brand called The Laundry Room.
The post was captioned, “When you google ‘Airplane Mode Sweatshirt’ — the first search that pops-up is a little-known loungewear brand called, @tlroom. The brand retails out of @nordstromnyc and is known for its cool-girl vibe, comfy sweats and chill silhouettes.
And, now @monishajaising and @shwetabachchan’s new brand — @mxsworld — has the same sweatshirt with the exact same slogan. So, who do we blame the mess on?
