Disappointed

If you follow my blog, you'll know that my mother and I are huge fans of Hanna Bernhard's jewelry. Natalie is also a dear friend, and we were so upset and shocked to receive this distress signal from her this morning.

Natalie has always been so proud to have fashion icon Iris Apfel as a customer. Iris has been photographed wearing Hanna Bernhard on many occasions. It must have been a real sting to see a knock-off of her own jewelry splashed across Racked.com, under the headline 'Iris Apfel for HSN'.

My mom and I are so disappointed to see this. Shame on Iris for taking credit for a design that is not her's for the sake of lining her own pockets. Natalie and her husband should be compensated for this design.

And here is Iris Apfel's replica of Hanna Bernhard's design.

How disheartening. We always admired Iris's style. It is just awful to see her blatantly copy the work of our good friend. This isn't over yet, and you can be sure my mom and I will be on team Hanna Bernhard all the way.
