Do you think they give a f*** about quality? In this day in age, it's looks over comfort.

It is Tween central. Now that I am an adult, I can spot quality from yards away. Will I be buying a $17 dollar cardigan for work at Forever 21? Never. I know see the true value of designer quality items. They fit me better, they are tailored, and the quality is amazing. I am still low on cash at times which is why I shop discount stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, Burlington Coat Factory ect. For a few more dollars, I get the REAL designer items and they last decades. Again, the fit is just incomparable. I rather pay the discounted $30.00 for a Calvin Klein dress that is quality and makes my body look like a bombshell than a $24.00 ill fitted cotton drape from Forever 21 that makes me look like a ghetto guidette that is 4 months pregnant. If you cannot afford designer, shop smart. Discount stores and clearance sections at department stores are amazing. I am over Forever 21. It is Tween central.

Isn't this company using the philosophy of Eastern teachings of humility and such and exploiting it through marketing a product at a huge cost? If they're really on a tip to promote the ideology, why are they charging $2,000 for a beaded bracelet. For that price, I'd rather buy a plan ticket and travel to Asia myself and experience the land of which this ideology arises and come back with beads from there, just saying.

So forever 21 is basically the next best thing for us "Average shoppers".. Forever 21 may have it's ups and downs but in the end it's all about looking decent and feeling good about yourself. Now, if anyone really cared about quality at forever 21.. Forever 21 wouldn't even exist. But obviously not many people take the time to research fabrics and what not..

Good for Herve Leger/BCBG taking this to court. I thought of Herve Leger right away when Stretta launched... what a complete copy. The Design Director and Co-Founder for Stretta had even uploaded a picture last year (via FB) pictured at their own studio with a Herve Leger store bag that was seen on the floor in the background. When I saw it, I was like, yep... it totally reaffirmed my initial thought of the brand... another wannabe. Shame on Stretta. I knew this would happen at some point.

Comment on Herve Leger Sues Stretta in Trade Dress Lawsuit by Laura http://fameappeal.com/2012/03/herve-leger-sues-stretta-in-trade-dress-lawsuit/comment-page-1/#comment-1419 Laura Mon, 19 Mar 2012 23:57:46 +0000 http://fameappeal.com/?p=3109#comment-1419 I've never bought Stretta dresses, but I down own authentic Herve Leger dresses. But if Max Azria is trying to trademark the 'Bandage Dress' so nobody else can make the design, then he needs to get over himself because it's bloody ridiculous. Also, Stretta do not use the same fabric as Herve Leger dresses- their dresses are made from 85% Rayon and 25% Nylon- versus Herve Leger's usual fabric content of 90% Rayon, 9% Nylon and 1% Elastane. Max Azria did NOT invent the bandage dress- he bought the company in 1997 from Herve Leger himself and then relaunched the company in 2007. Bandage dresses were wildly popular in the late 1980's and even more popular in the 1990's, and BOTH were popularized not only by Herve Leger, but also Azzedine Alaia. So for Max Azria to try and claim that 'bandage style' is unique to his brand and try to(what it sounds like he's trying) to ban others from using the banding/bandage style on dresses is a joke. To me, I can spot the difference between Stretta and Herve Leger quite easily just by looking at pictures- Stretta's dresses don't have the same cuts and it's quite easy to tell that the fabric is thinner and probably not as high quality as Herve Leger dresses. BUT for Stretta to employ a 'leak' campaign that alleges that their dresses are made in the same factories as Herve Leger dresses and that is found to be false, then that is pretty low. However, in all honestly, in the world of fashion who knows... Both of these brands are made in China( as are many other bandage designs) and of course, if Stretta's claim did prove do be found true, then that wouldn't really be the best look for Herve Leger, whose dresses retail at fair bit more than Stretta's do. Stretta is not the first brand to experiement/ launch bandage dresses/ and ones which are very similar- various top designer labels have also done so- Proenza Schouler, Armani Exchange and Karen Millen to name a few and in my opinion, sometimes the other brands provide nicer designers and the quality is near or just as good as Herve Leger. Fashion ALWAYS repeats itself- just look the past year's fashion- there's been a huge throwback to the 50's, 60's and 70's. Basically most of the designs exremely similar or the same to what my grandmother wore when she was young. So sometimes perhaps before some designers start having a go at other designers, they should look at themselves first. I’ve never bought Stretta dresses, but I down own authentic Herve Leger dresses.

Comment on Cancelled Lady Gaga performance makes Russian Music TV sue for $1.5M by Lulaine @ RD Legal Funding http://fameappeal.com/2012/02/cancelled-lady-gaga-performance-makes-russian-music-tv-sue-for-1-5m/comment-page-1/#comment-1409 Lulaine @ RD Legal Funding Thu, 15 Mar 2012 17:37:18 +0000 http://fameappeal.com/?p=3058#comment-1409 This type of activity happens all the time in the music industry for concert promoters and bookers. This fight will be tied up in litigation as are the many that find themselves in this position. The only way is for the courts to decide that the money has to be given back. Before any money is sent, an independent investigation on getting Lady Gaga's agreement to do the show should have been done.

But this isn't the only matter with their clothing and the industry as a whole. Today< I found out that the chemicals used in making of the f21 clothing may cause cancer. I know some people have heard about this a while ago and have waved it off thinking that this couldn't possibly be true, yet unfortunately, I was told that there was a sign at the registers warning the customers of what they were purchasing along with the store policy. One of the region managers was asked about it and she forced the employees to take the signs down and later replaced them with just the store policy. F21 hiding the truth for their benefit? Of course. Hi, I just came across this article,after doing some extensive research, and having worked at f21 for almost 2 years, I would have to agree with you.
