China is known for their ability to copy anything and make it their own. From fast food restaurants...
But did you know that the Chinese ripped off an entire Victoria's Secret fashion show three years ago?
In 2012, students from the Chengdu University Of Technology decided to stage their own fashion show for their graduation ceremony...
... And according to a university representative, all the clothing and lingerie were "designed" by the school's students
According to Netease, all the clothing was “designed” and modeled by the school’s students.thebeijinger.com
"Our institution is a radio and television media professional based." He said that last year, about four or five months ago, the theater of Television Art and Design Department of the school held a costume party show by the students showcasing their own work and the "underwear show " is only one aspect of the performance. Participants in the catwalk are college students, and the lingerie they wore are designed by the students of the college themselves.163.com
But don't you think they look like they were wearing props and lingerie from the Victoria's Secret fashion show?
Although they looked like they were copied to the tee, there were some differences...
For example, this Chinese version conveniently left out the "VS" initials on the lingerie
While this one had a different pair of shoes on
On the left, the "Mickey Mouse" wings look elegant and dreamy, while the knockoff version was quite a mess
They tried really hard to make this work, but the students weren't nailing the forest look
You can see that the copies need a lot of improvement
They never came close to the original
It must have taken a whole lot of time and effort to create these replicas and send them down the runway - why didn't they just create original masterpieces?
We wonder what Tyra Banks would have to say about this...
