Ohio designer, now living in LA, accuses Khloe Kardashian of copying her designs

Posted at 12:13 PM, Jun 07, 2017

A designer with ties to Ohio has accused one of the Kardashian sisters of copying her work, and gained some national exposure in the process.

It started back in December when Destiney Bleu says Khloe ordered items from her fashion line Dbleudazzled.

Bleu grew up in Lorain, but now lives in Los Angeles where she runs her business.

But it wasn't at a Cavs game that she spotted her designs, rather the independent designer accuses Khloe of copying her items for her own fashion line 'Good American.'

Bleu took to Twitter on June 2 to call out the reality TV star.
"When someone buys 1 of everything on your site, has you make them custom work, never posts it or wears it, then copies it," Bleu wrote, attached to an earlier tweet sent out by Kardashian. 
 
That tweet has since been shared more than 7,000 times and gained attention on social media and in national publications. Some have come to Bleu's defense, while others have not.
 
Kardashian hasn't directly reacted to the issue on Twitter, however, Good American Jeans released the following statement to News 5:
 
“Under no circumstances did Good American or Khloé Kardashian infringe on another brand’s intellectual property and we are going through the proper legal channels to handle the situation.”
 

But bleu says this is bigger than money or 15 seconds of fame tweeting, "I didn't speak up for attention or $. Im trying to be a voice for indie designers who are stolen from because its the right thing to do."
