Hard to believe, but it’s not for the first time that Victoria Secret is in the fashion news for being accused of stealing or copying designs.

Last year Diet Prada unveiled that some of Victoria Secret’s designs glanced notably identical to ones by Fleur du Mal. Later it was revealed that an associate buyer for Victoria Secret had purchased Fleur du Mal’s lingerie before the copying came out.
It is 2020, but things are still similar in the case of the lingerie giant. Victoria Secret is yet again in the fashion news, debuting the latest fashion lingerie collection that is approximately similar to the collection by the British brand Edge o’ Beyond.
All this got highlighted in the latest fashion news when Diet Prada said that Victoria Secret is at it again. Diet Prada disclosed that a high-ranking employee of Victoria Secret bought those very Edge o’ Beyond pieces, and seemingly planning to do the same with the brand d.bleu.dazzled, a brand worn by Beyonce.
