Just yesterday, Versace filed a complaint in a New York federal court, accusing fast fashion retail company Fashion Nova of copying its designs. According to The Fashion Law, Versace is suing Fashion Nova for imitating its signature black and gold Barocco print and the iconic "Jungle Print" dress famously worn by Jennifer Lopez at the 2000 Grammys.

“Fashion Nova’s ability to churn out new clothing so quickly is due in large part to its willingness to copy the copyrighted designs, trademarks and trade dress elements of well-known designers, and trade on their creative efforts in order to bolster [its own] bottom line,” the complaint reads.

Versace adds that Fashion Nova has blatantly manufactured, marketed, and sold apparel using the same or significantly similar copyrighted designs without permission, leaving customers confused as to if the two brands are affiliated, and ultimately damaging its intellectual property rights.

In addition to the Barocco print and "Jungle Print" dress, Versace claims that Fashion Nova has imitated its “Pop Hearts” print and “Greca” link patterns. The luxury fashion house is seeking monetary damages for copyright infringement, trademark infringement, and trade dress infringement.
