I've never really voiced an opinion about the high street stores copying designs. I guess this is because it's really a mixed bag for me. Clearly, it's wrong. It's wrong to steal the work of an artist, which is what the high street is doing. But my feelings on the matter don't keep me from buying cheaper imitations. I would never buy a "fake" prada bag or one of those kinds of knock-offs that you get from street venders, but I'm not above buying a "designer-inspired" top from Forever 21. If I had lots of money, I wouldn't support this kind of practice, but I don't and I deal with it.
Hmm. I can't decide. Any thoughts?
