Derek Lam is now suing Ivanka!
Devastating news for Ivanka, who was just entering the shoe business.
Donald's daughter Ivanka Trump has just set foot into the shoe design business, and she's already in trouble. Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann, chief executive officer of Derek Lam, claims that Ivanka has stolen their design and made an exact replica. “We have seen very similar copies before but we have never seen a shoe that perfectly copied,” he said.

Derek Lam has given Ivanka seven business days to pull the shoes of the market, otherwise there is a tough lawsuit waiting for her. Click here to see the shoes in comparison (people)
