Anna Sui Fights Copycats, One Tee at a Time

When good bar clothes go bad.Photo: Jed Egan

What do you do when a cheap, mass-market company knocks off your designs? Well, first you sue the crap out of them. Then, while you wait to collect your hard-earned winnings, you make up a T-shirt and give it away at your fashion show. Not just any old shirt, mind you, but one emblazoned with the devious mugs of your nemesis, Old West style. That’s what Anna Sui did in retaliation to Don and Jin Chang, owners of Forever 21, who allegedly ripped off her clothes. The bounty: $21,000. And judging by the number of designs the Changs have allegedly stolen from, oh, everyone, someone’s bound to score that cash soon enough.
