Rick Roy: Designer Or Darzi?

Does Rick Roy know the difference between a designer and a darzi. A designer creates original pieces, a darzi merely copies a designer's pieces and can throw in some changes.

Looking at his work, what do you think should be Rick Roy's correct title?

"Designer" or "Darzi"?

It's ironic how it's been Kangana who's been wearing the - dare I say - "copycat" designs both times...

The second design in pink/purple is completely identical..what a shame.

However, I can't tell if the first one is really a copy of Valentino..its not that clear..

really he is darzi!
Good part is that it's SO easy to prove if sm1 is copying..and then that person loses all credibility. ppl wont even buy his/her original work, assuming that everything is a copy.

what is copycat about the first design ?

I think it happens everywhere nowadays. The local designers make replica of the silhouettes and put their names on it. How convenient.

This guy was in my batch at NIFT..he had a penchant for stealing things in general..in fact while in fashion school he was almost going to get dismissed for stealing a fellow classmate's mobile phone.
