Designer Vs High Street

Normally, I do all my shopping online. However, this week I decided to pop into Zara to kill some time. I could not believe my eyes; there were sooo many items that were near enough perfect replicas of items from luxury and designer brands S/S ’14 collections. I do not even understand how it’s allowed! On one hand, I think it’s an absolute outrage but on the other hand it’s an amazing oppurtunity for shoppers who do not have the absured amouts of money  that takes to own a designer wardrobe.

I have complied the list below, the first image(s) are of the designer brands and the next are images of Zara’s S/S stock – the resemblance is shocking (especially #3). How do you feel about fast fashion stores copying luxury brands?
