On this day in fashion history

2002, Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere was accused of plagiarising the styles of dead designer, Kaisik Wong, for his spring/summer 2002 collection. This caused many to dount his future as a designer. When he spoke about it he had this to say “I am influenced by the Seventies creations of lesser known Wong,  this is how I work. I’ve always said I’m looking at vintage clothes.”
