Priyanka Chopra wore a Pakistani designer’s velvet jacket in an event for the promotion of her film, Bajirao Mastani. The event took place in New York and the jacket she was wearing was from Faiza Saqlain’s collection. Priyanka was wearing the jacket underneath which she wore a jumpsuit.
There was another Indian designer who claimed to be the designer was later contacted by Faiza who wanted to claim the rights of the dress or otherwise she would sue them.
“We are amazed at how you are claiming this jacket to be yours. This is my design which was showcased during SAARC conference in Governor House, Pakistan. We have a lot more celebrities and clients wearing the jacket and we have videos [as proof]. We’ll have to take a legal action if this information is not clarified or this fake claim is not removed,” the message read.
It's hilarious how a designer from across the border is claiming this to be her design, when it was bought last year from us after the SAARC summit. Pictured above, on bottom left, is Film actress Noor Bokhari, wearing it for an Eid show in 2013, a model showcasing it during 3rd SAARC young entrepreneur summit, held last year in Lahore and another model on top left wearing it for a shoot in 2014. #whatsoursisours #irkedattheaudacity
