‘Please stop copying me’: Zara Shahjahan Throws Shade At Fashion Brands Taking ‘Inspiration’ From Her Work

The renowned designer requests her competitors to “put some pressure on their brains”.

Fashion designer Zara Shahjahan calls out fashion brands to stop copying her work.

Renowned fashion designer Zara Shahjahan throws shade at other fashion brands copying her designs. The celebrated designer took to her social media account on Instagram to make a special request to other designers.

“Please, please, please stop copying me,” Zara wrote on her Instagram story. “Honestly, you guys are very talented and if you really put pressure on your brains, I promise you can come up amazing ideas.”

It is unclear if Zara Shahjahan is taking a swing at anyone in particular. However, she has a point. There are a few fashion designers who were “inspired” by her work. One of the notable fashion brands is AnM Closet by Aiman Muneeb and Minal Khan. The twin sisters were accused of ripping off Zara Shahjahan’s Eid collection last year.

In another instance, Zara Shahjahan raised a few eyebrows with her Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir photoshoot that looked eerily similar to the Netflix show A Suitable Boy.

Zara Shahjahan started her design career in 2004 after graduating from the prestigious National College of Arts (NCA) in Lahore. Over the years her design house has grown beyond borders due to her understanding of different cultural genres of style. She has become an eminent Pakistani designer in the fashion world and made her mark on the international fashion shows.
