Irony alert! Days after Lindsay Lohan accused pal Patrick Aufdenkamp of stealing designs meant for her new 6126 clothing line, other designers are now pointing fingers at her. Black Milk Clothing designer James Lillis posted a sketch of LiLo’s “Diamond” leggings on his blog next to his “Sheer Spartans” and, well…it is the sincerest form of flattery, James. Meanwhile a geometric dress sketch for 6126 posted on Women’s Wear Daily looks rather similar to a Jen Kao dress Lindsay wore last month. “ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a shame to support the concept of taking advantage of designers who are still trying to develop a name and solidify the image of their design aesthetic,” said Kao.
6126 president Kristi Kaylor claims it’s all “purely coincidental.” “The 6126 illustrations for the upcoming fall 2010 collections do not even describe the fabric content, fit or actual construction details of the garments,” she told WWD. “This is merely an accusation based upon a pencil sketch with no concrete viable evidence to back up the allegations.” Kaylor has a point—it’s possible Lindsay’s sketches would have been screened and altered by her fashion henchmen until they became something a little more original. But will the line even get to that stage now?
