The latest in fashion news reveals that luxury label Chanel is ordered to pay €200,000 to a former knitwear supplier following an appeal from a 2009 lawsuit that said the house copied one of World Tricot’s crochet patterns. While Chanel was originally able to put to rest a lawsuit by the knitwear company that claimed wrongful termination of a business relationship and counterfeiting, a Paris appeals court overturned the counterfeiting portion of the original suit Friday. “This is the first time we have faced this type of situation, although we work with close to 400 suppliers,” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel fashion, told WWD. “This very specific case is in no way a reflection of the quality of our relations with our suppliers.”
