Actually, I've bought stuff from F21 and a few months later seen the same thing at Target. For more! And they were the exact same material and everything. I wonder if they both buy stuff from the same manufacturer.
Oh for sure, I love finding designer-inspired duds at Forever 21. My point with this post was just that it's funny Forever 21 would "draw inspiration" from a designer collaboration at another fast fashion store, such as Target, rather than the runways or some expensive designer. Also, we have no way of knowing who copied who, I'm just guessing F21 copied Target cuz they came out with the Erickson Beamon collection first. Then again, maybe F21 is copying the REAL Erickson Beamon line. Or, as Alexis suggested, maybe they all get materials and merchandise from a few of the same manufacturers, which is probably the most likely scenario as there's so much cross-pollination going on with fashion these days...or, as a couple people suggested, maybe they just look similar and I'm reading into it too much
