It’s been a while since Lindsay’s been in the fashion law news but don’t worry folks, she hasn’t deserted us completely! Yep, Lindsay has once again found herself on the wrong side of a fashion lawsuit relating to her website Vigme, which allows fans to shop celebrities’ virtual closets.
The former child star is being sued by tech entrepreneur Fima Potik who claims that Lindsay had an agreement with him to launch an almost identical website, Spotted Friend, back in 2013. According to the lawsuit, Potik created the application and was planning to launch the site with Lindsay and her brother Micahel Jr. However,the Lohan siblings subsequently set up a competing company, Vigme, without Potik’s knowledge.
Lohan’s attorney, Mark J Heller, has dismissed Potik’s claims stating;
“Allegations of any impropriety in Lindsay Lohan’s business relationship concerning this Web site are inaccurate and clearly designed to capitalise on her worldwide recognition as a fashion icon.”
Yep, you read it right, ‘fashion icon’.
Regular reader’s will remember that Lindsay’s last fashion venture also ended in a lawsuit. Last year she was sued by the apparel manufacturer D.N.A.M. that partnered with her leggings line 6126 claiming that her ”drug-addled image” destroyed 6126′s reputation and rendered the clothing line completely unsellable. The lawsuit was settled for a meagre $150,000!
