Farah Talib Aziz (FTA) Accused Haris Shakeel, of Copying Their Designs

Although the fashion industry in Pakistan has not developed much, the last few years have seen an increase in the fashion trend in the country. With the rise of fashion trends, fashion brands are now reportedly copying each other's designs to create similar designs, which has also confused fashion consumers.

The management of Pakistan's renowned fashion house Farah Talib Aziz (FTA) recently accused another fashion house, Haris Shakeel, of copying their designs. At the recent Bridal Kochiwar (Wedding Dress) Fashion Week in Lahore, Haris Shakeel introduced a new brand called 'Ghazal', which was appreciated by many, but Farah Talib Aziz Fashion House claimed that the dress was a copy of her dress.

After Harris Shakeel introduced the 'Ghazal' brand at Fashion Week, Farah Talib Aziz and her daughter Maliha Aziz commented on Harris Shakeel's Instagram, claiming that they had copied their old clothes.

Later, the management of Farah Talib Aziz Fashion House told Dawn Images that Haris Shakeel actually copied the design of the dress introduced by her in December 2019. Farah Talib Aziz's manager Maliha Aziz claimed that the design of the 'Ghazal' brand that Haris Shakeel recently introduced was stolen from the clothes she introduced in December 2019.

She claimed that she had also received phone calls from female users complaining that Harris Shakeel was selling cheap copies of her designs.

At the same time, Maliha Aziz claimed that her clothes were being sold as her own at Harris Shakeel's store on Tariq Road in Karachi. Apart from Farah Talib Aziz, another fashion designer Zaheer Abbas also claimed to quote Haris Shakeel that he was copying other brands including him. He also alleged that he had seen a copy of his designed clothes being sold at Harris Shakeel's store.

On the other hand, Haris Shakeel termed the allegations as false and said that there is a difference between his and Farah Talib Aziz's clothes day and night. He said that not only the color of the brand 'Ghazal' introduced by him has changed but also its design is different.

He asked why Farah Talib Aziz did not take legal action against him if she felt that he was copying her. On the question of legal action, Farah Talib Aziz Fashion House said that since there would be even a slight change in the design of clothes, it could not be sued.

According to Farah Talib Aziz's administration, if Harris Shakeel makes a copy by looking at her clothes but changes the design a little, including the color, then no legal action can be taken against him. According to the management, in the same way, the Pakistan Fashion Council cannot take any action against the copying fashion designer, because even a slight change in the design makes it a different matter.
