obviously an imitation!
Don't judge as if you know things. Malay nyo naman may DIRECTIVES.
And what are these glorious directives?
IMITATION!!! Kaya di sinuot ni Jessica Sanchez ang mga gowns nya kahit ilang beses syang pabalik-balik sa America. Trying hard tong si Rajo. Magaling naman pero wag ng kopyahin. Ang gagaling nyong magturo sa mga young designers sa Project Runway pero kayo naman gaya-gaya. Mag-isip ng orihinal na konsepto! Ang puso ko, please.
omg sobrang gayang gaya pati cuts ng fabric!
that could be a directive
a directive towards replicating a dress?haha!
Directive? Di ba cable company yun sa states (Direct TV)? wenk... wenk... wenk..... Kaw na maraming alam sa fashion Anonymous June 11, 2012 9:43 AM!!
is Rajo working for someone to receive a directive ?
Inspiration! Besides, fashion has no copyright protection--for good reason.
Regardless of your copyright excuse, it's an imitation. The best 'reason' why fashion has no copyright protection is for brands like Zara or (locally) SM to imitate the current trends and sell them at a fraction of the price - not like Rajo Laurel, who sells clothes as if he has some creative input in it.
Oh my!!! And all this time I thought he was a genius. Yun pla KOPYA lang!
baka naman dito lang siya nangopya. Oh well...
baka naman may directives. LOLs
few tweaks here and there, but an imitation nonetheless
Pansin ko lang, mga COPYCAT yung tropapits nila
Had this been in project runway in America he will be out. Tsk!
omg! imitation talaga! that's the dress that put anthony vaccarello on everyone's radar. sobrang obvious naman kung maka-imitate.
sobra talaga teh? bakit ako di ko mahalata?
may directives teh
Should have cut it differently! Nilgyan LNG ng sleeves and pinaikli! Pero yun cut same pa din.. imitation.....
AYYYTEH ang peg??
nge, ano ba yan? hindi na yan inspiration. ginawa nya lang shorter version e. where's his input? kung inspiration lang, dapat hindi parehong-pareho! tsk, tsk. nakakahiya.
wala bang date kung kelan ginawa yan para malaman natin kung sinong gaya2 sa kanila...
Tama! Baka si RL pala nagaya lol!
spring summer 2012 yung dress ni anthony vaccarrello.
imitation. iniba lang niya ng konti...~ P
Imitation. Pinahaba lang ang dress eh. Haixt
I mean pinaiksi. Haha naduling ako,bka ma'okray
The question is, who copied whom?! For me, i like Rajo's version better. Pinaiksi lang yung skirt and may see-through sa pantaas. Definitely an imitation. Pati nga yung model, parang kinopya!
"The question is, who copied whom?" Obviously its Rajo! :D-Anthony Vacarello
Gaga Ka! hindi ako copy kets!-Rajo Laurel
It's very clear it's an IMITATION. Nakakainis Yung dahilan na INSIPIRATION. Gayang gaya inspiration? Duh. Kahit wlang alam sa fashion may mga mata naman kami dba? Common sense na lang! Parehong Pareho eh. Sna naman be creative. Kaloka lang si rajo mag comment sa prp. Eh siya pla nanggagaya lang! :-)
Designers copy/get inspiration from other designers who come before them. Usually, there's enough difference to know that it was just inspired. This one though, because of the unique cut-outs, make it seem easy to say that it was copied. Too coincidental and similar cut-outs to not think it was directly copied.If this was just a red dress with simple lines, it wouldn't have been that a big deal. But because of the uniqueness of the design, it seems a bigger deal.
Whoah! Definitely not a coincidence!
I think may pagkakaiba sila sa back details base on the cut sa shoulder
I'm certain Vaccarrelo's work came out before Rajo's. The Vaccarrello dress was from his Spring 2012 collection. The Athletenique collection is Summer 2012.I think its too much of a coincedence. That dress put Vaccerrello on the map.
gaya gaya puto maya
Kaya i dont like him anymore. Overrated. Kung hindi sobra... Kulang at napakadaming "copyright" issues. Why is he even on that show? I dont think he deserves that spot.
i think this isnt the first time that he was accused of copying someone else's design
he had an issue before with arcy gayatin.
copy cat.... hahay Pinas....
A close copy for sure.
khit ano pa yan di ko keri isuot yan noh!!
I think Rajo sa the work of AV then naisip niya na mas maganda kung maigsi at may see through sleeves kaya ginawa niya.. Ibig sabihin hindi imitation kc ang imitation copyang copya maliban sa authenticity.. Ito INSPIRATION... Obvious nmn.
EXACTLY! unique siya in a way for it to be INSPIRATION! kaloka... di na nga matapos ang mga chismis sa kanya about being a copycat eto na naman! Ano ba yan! You pay for your designer's talent tapos copycats?!?!
That's embarassing. Huling-huli! He should pull the dress from his collection but I bet you he'll pretend he doesn't know anything about this. I wonder if the people he sells his overpriced knock offs to know he steals from other designers. Nakakahiya!!!!!
dati ang taas din ng tingin ko dito kay Rajo laurel kaya lang ng i expose ni FP ang mga pinaggagawa niya parang biglang nagiba ang pagtingin ko
anthony vaccarello's spring /summer 2012 collection was launched september last year. rajo's athletenique collection was launched march this year lang..http://www.showbit.com/senza-categoria/2011/09/anthony-vaccarello-spring-summer2012/don
Parang mga pelikulang Pilipino ung mga istorya kinuha sa ibat ibang pelikula at pinagsamasama lang parang pagkaing sinahugan ng Kung ano ano! Hahahahahaha! #itsmoreoriginalinthePhilippines
designers should really be true to themselves..meaning to have a personal design aesthetic or technique that came from within.hindi naman kasi maiiwasan magkaron ng similarities PERO if you have your own perspective, it will not look like xerox copied. At Rajo's level of expertise, i am sure he is capable of doing original designs yun nga lang meron din yung part na u want your designs to capture the zeitgeist thus this sheer number. Pero marami pwedeng gawin jan para in ka sa trend pero hindi gaya..if this is from ZARA ok lang kasi mas market yun pero Rajo ito e na premium designer tapos manggagaya lang ng design..hindi tugma and career damaging. Lalo na now, ang bilis ng info and mahuhuli ka talaga pag nanggaya ka
Rajo Laurel likes to copy. Remember the one that anne curtis where that somehow looks like this? It was copied from Zuhair Murad! I hate rajo
imitation definitely! parang naubusan na sya ng creative juices niya. this isn't the first time he's accused of imitation. he even had this issue with arcy gayatin, this designer from cebu who claimed rajo imitated her designs...
the posts that fp have been showing lately related to fashion like the covers of various magazines...it's so embarassing that our so called "top magazines" in the country are imitating international magazines...parang trying too hard to be in hollywood. this goes th same with rajo and some designers with big big names na. people pay them astronomical figures so we expect a degree of originality from them. it's so disappointing lang kung gaya gaya.
agree ako diyan.
it's not an inspiration noh...obvious na obvious yung color pati yung cut and design exactly the same...sobra naman to manggaya halos complete replica. nakakahiya! ang mahal mahal pa magcharge! eh dapat yung mga tao bumili nalang ng original!
Uh, people? pulezzz?imitation has always been part of the fashion industry, it's not really unusual. Some names in Paris are known to buy an actual work of another designer, cut off the tag and replace it with theirs and sold at their boutiques. Sometimes you just really have to copy an inspiration.nothing is truly original as in o-r-i-g-i-n-a-l naman, remember the 20 Year Rule?"Good Artists Borrow, Great Artists Steal"
Gosh! Piracy is stealing and therefore STEALING IS A CRIME HAHAHAHA! Wlang pinagkaiba yung mga Imitated designs sa mga FAKE PRODUCTS KULANG N LNG PTI TAG GAYAHIN!
hahahaha. kung ganun okay lang pala ang piracy. hehehehe
Pwede ba, this is not new to the fashion industry anymore. Talaga naman he is know for copying. Kaya wala talaga siya statement of his own. Everything he does is as he terms it "INSPIRED" by other designers. Review his creations and you will see na wala talagang sariling character and expression of his own. He even copies local designers like Cesar Gaupo, Cary Santiago and Inno Sotto.
totoo yan... yung sheer dress nila anne curtis nakita ko na rin before sa vogue. kay reem acra ata yun or another international designer.sad. huwag niyang dahilan ang 'inspiration'... please lang. yun ang gasgas na dahilan.
lahat naman ginagaya , di ba pati its fun in the phil logo ginaya
sobrang COPY naman ito....wala nga na copyright law for the fashion industry pero NAMAN!?!?!.... sobrang kopya ito....... sana na iba man lang ang angles at cuts nung damit kaso gayang gaya..... and pag na nood ka ng project runaway philippines...sobra sila, including rajo, manita pag copy cat yung designer contestant tapos siya ganun din pala....di masama mag kopya or ma-inspired pero medyo i-tweak naman sana na mag mumukang inspiration di gaya nito....this is an outright copy....
gaya gaya naman tlga si radio ! kala mo sinong magaling sa PRP!! i love seeing the contestants creations pero kung maka comment mga judges parang sinong pashushal na magaling! gaya gaya dn naman!!
kopyang kopya naman! LOL
Nako... Not a fan of this designer. Ilang beses na siya nahuhuling may kamukha ang mga designs niya. Sana naman, magkaroon siya ng ibang ideas. Para tuloy hindi siya designer but a mere IMITATOR/PLAGIARIZER. He should be sued.
Definitely an IMITATION..its very obvious.!
Wow bakit my special mention na sa Ayyy Teh wala naman nyan before
imitation! sana man lang iniba nya yung flow ng lines.. masyadong pareho! Parang F21 version yung kay Rajo
It looks like he bought the original and altered it!
ano bey? di man lang iniba kulay.
natutuwa ako sa fp kiasi una ako nag basa niyo nung sa mga kagagahan ng ibang local designers. hanggang sa nabasa ko na yung sea shell inspired kuno wedding dres na mukha galing sa versace couture. ay ewan. pero marami na rin ako napansin na damit na i think na OA sa pagkaka inspired. meron damit si zsa zsa padilla noon, na galing sa spirng 2002 i think ni valentino, ayun may black version ni rajo suot ni zsa zsa sa born diva. yung valentino ay green na may halter top nasuot yun ni halle berry.basta madami, si charlene gonzales may i proud to say this is by rajo sa the buzz na mukhang knock off sa design ni frida giannini for gucci. ito yung gold dress. meron din naman na nasuot si charlene na kamukha talaga ng galing sa collection ng balmain.
winner talaga! sarap magbasa ng ganito! kaka-entertain... more pa po please
http://leetolmissjoyce.blogspot.com/2010/02/uncanny-similarity-between-rajo-laurel.html He once plagiarized a Japanese brand, apparently.
I just hate Rajo ever since. And I don't like him (or her) as one of the judges sa Project Runway Philippines.
Actually, his vehicle to the so called Fashion industry is his last name. Yon lang ang pull niya coupled with his being well versed with the english language. Other than those two..isa siyang mananhi, modista no different from those in Kamuning.
I really don't respect rajo as a designer. magaling lang mag market ng sarili. pero talent-wise di ako bilib. what i don't like about him, aside from copying, his collections have been blah.
DEFINITELY IMITATION!and may i add, may chaka syang collection before, i remember: cheap shiny fabrics na mukhang mga kumot na nakabalot sa models. ang point: hindi sya talented. bakit ba sya naging PRP judge? ewan. dami naman dyan mas magagaling na designers.
imitation..isang malaking COPY CAT!
Hay naku, yan ang gawa ng isang judge sa Project Runway Philippines! Hahaha. Kung maka okray ng creations, wagas!
Matagal ng issue kay R.L. (proj. runway judge) ang pangongopya.
ang obyos naman nito... sana nilagyan man lang ng bulaklak, polka dots o bubbles (lady gaga lang ang peg?)... hehehe! wala akong kaalam-alam sa fashion, pero ang laking coincidence naman nyan... sayang!
Kung for Spring/Summer 2012 ginawa ni Anthony Vacarello yung dress, meaning nauna si Rajo Laurel sa concept kasi 2011 cya naglabas ng ganyang style. It was Anne Curtis who first wore Rajo's dress of similar design at the 1st Philippine Fashion Ball which was held July last year. Mahirap i verify kung nanggaya nga o hindi but I'd give Rajo the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure hindi lang naman si Rajo ang designer na gumagawa ng ganyan. And, I agree with one comment here that fashion doesn't have a copyright.
I AGREE. I'm sure hindi lang si Rajo Laurel ang ganyan. Just like the Preview post, hindi lang Preview ang ganyan. AND hindi lang ngayon nanggaya ang Preview. known for imitation tayo.
so what if fashion has no copyright? Asan integrity nyo?
i remember inaway niya si @dudeinterrupted kasi pinamukha sa kanya na gaya gaya siya sa kanyang mga creation. i dont like him. fluent lang siya mag inggles.
Nothing new. He is too busy travelling,socializing and eating. And that's how you enjoy life. He might be known to everyone as a copycat but hey, at least he is living the life:) might be the expense of others but so what! Raj, make the new resort 2013 of Celine and Donna Karan! Amazing cuts! Givenchy is too obvious to copy.
IMITATION! tinatanong pa ba yan, e kopyang kopya naiba lang hindi mahaba yung damit at may net like fabric yung kay Rajo. me ginawa din syang gown, "inspired" by Vera Wang
ika nga ni cherie gil: you're nothing but a second rate trying hard copy cat...use your brain cells rajo!
Similar to this one too! http://www.spot.ph/gallery/2273/preview-rsquo-s-best-dressed-ball-2012/article/51471#pid=41633
I think it's not an imitation, the dress is almost as similar as stella McCartney without the polka dots,
P--- "directives" na yan, paulit-ulit! This is an obvious IMITATION. Your argument is invalid.
He/She should have made the cuts on the other side, so the term INSPIRATION would be fairly acceptable.. tska ang aura aura nya sa PRP nagmamaasim ng wagas..
Di na inspiration tawag dyan! Imitation to death!!!
I know a designer contestant at project runway, he is interviewed by a certain magazine, and he commented something like, other designers always copy from international couturiers... And he is not pertaining to particular designer, then after which rajo approached him and whispered : maldita kang bakla ka! Talk about being GUILTY!
