Laduma Ngxokolo the founder of Maxhosa by Laduma fashion label is not deterred by the size of Zara and is determined to take the brand to task over copyright infringement allegations.
Laduma expressed his feelings about Zara allegedly replicating his traditional Xhosa-inspired designs on social media yesterday.
I’ve had a few copyright infringement cases in the past, and won majority of them, but @zara took this one to great extremes. My lawyers are dealing with this matter, fully understanding that this is Zara’s business model, regardless of such we will enforce our entitlement of laying criminal charges under the SA Copyright Act, 98. Regardless of the outcome, my family and I will be returning every piece of clothing we bought from them. P.s: they’ve started removing the socks from their global site, Sandton outlet, etc. @ Johannesburg, Gauteng
