Designer Look For Less: Duchess Catherine’s Red McQueen Lookalike Dress

  • Pin it

How quick was that, really? Designer collection’s lookalikes constantly fill our wardrobes via some of the most prestigious fast fashion brands so here’s just another example of just another type of counterfeiting haute fashion.

Remember the beautiful red dress worn by Duchess Catherine for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee? We talked about the flawless McQueen red dress and we signaled that Sarah Burton even added long sleeves (and lengthened the skirt) for the lovely Duchess.

Duchess Catherine s red dress for less I was browsing around and a particular piece of news about the above mentioned dress caught my attention!

A lookalike of the original McQueen design, complete with pleated short skirt and sleeveless top can be yours for just $22.50!

Buying this lookalike dress means you’re encouraging the counterfeiters?

I don’t think this is counterfeiting. It’s ‘inspired by’. It has always been this way in fashion. So many of the big names are often ‘inspired by’.
Counterfeiting don’t need encouragement.

Kate’s tailor made dress looks so much better, prettier. Good craft work shows. Always.

I would say that it is a counterfeit only if it calls itself a McQueen on the label or a McQuack. : )
Other than that it is as Riana stated “inspired by”. And yes Kate’s dress is the better made one I mean the other is only $22.50, one gets what one pays for in most cases. : )

One wonders where this cr*ppy dress has been fabricated and how much they paid the workers…..
