La diseñadora francesa Isabel Marant fue señalada (ooootra vez) de plagio por un abrigo que lleva patrones muy parecidos a los gabanes que artesanos tejen en Michoacán. @AnimalMX te cuenta.https://t.co/IZT1oYBnV3— Animal Político (@Pajaropolitico) October 24, 2020
French designer, Isabel Marant, is accused again of plagiarizing a design from indigenous people, this time, the purépecha from the state of Michoacán, Mexico.
She appeared on the international spotlight a few years ago for plagiarizing designs from mixe people from Oaxaca, this turn she went a little bit northern to lift a purépecha gabán (cape) from Charapan, Michoacán, that was used in her fall winter 20-21 recent collection.
The gabanes are weaved with a foot-treadle loom by the women of the community, a technique that is fiercely protected and passed from generations to generations.
She’s selling the cape for €650 approximately.
After further investigation, it was also discovered that a blouse from her spring summer 20 collection was identically lifted from designs from the people of Mitla, Oaxaca.
What other Mexican states have worthy enough designs to be plagiarized by Marant, ONTD?
