Famous fashion designer Elie Saab, who is globally renowned for dressing celebrities, has presented a new collection "Elie Saab Couture spring-2017" as part of Paris Fashion Week.
The dress from Saab’s cruise collection has copied design by Azerbaijani designer Rufat Ismayilov. Turkish bloggers revealed the similarity.
“I’ve received a photo and saw my outfit on the model. It's either coincidence or his employees stole my idea, but the designer does not know about it. This can happen with any designer, including me, as a lot of ideas come up. Although I do not exclude that when he saw my collection, he decided to make a copy. In case it is true, I’d be pleased that such a famous designer decided to copy me," said Rufat Ismayilov while talking to Trend Life.
Rufat Ismayilov, the founder of the Affair brand, has presented his unique and imaginative collections in Italy, Iran, Turkey, UAE and other countries.
Last year, he presented his collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Istanbul. His men's clothing collection was shown at Pitti Uomo 2015, the most important International event for menswear and men accessories collections.
