    ok this is straight up plagerism! In this electronic age, does Ms Mathani really think that no one is going to put two and two together and figure this out?

      Oh wait, looks like there is a 1 inch difference in the length of the white pattern (at the bottom of the dress) . That in itself is an intelligent design reinvention for Ms.Mahtani.

      Shame on her !!

    You’re being rather kind by saying ‘striking resemblance’. How about ‘carbon copy’? :P

    Considering it was a ‘Nandita mahtani’ showing at the IPL after party and not an ‘Ananya'(her store name) show, it obviously is plagiarism at its finest…(nalanda bhandari please take notes)

    The dress isn’t a revolutionary concept anyway(its just pattern based sequin sheeting), but considering that ms. mahtani was aware of the gryphon version, why would she go ahead and get it remade??

    why don’t we take it positively … it might be for “ananya” … we can’t judge them with out any genuine information ..

    It is shockingly similar!!

    I would wait to get a legit word on whether the item on the right was showcased as a Mahtani original.
    If it was, then enough is enough. This time Mahtani should be called out and brought to book. It’s only fair to a) the original designers, and b) to faithful and talented practitioners of the craft in India.

    The dress is identical to a michael kors one- its on netaporter. Not much of a designer now is she..

    I would like to believe that Ms. Mahtani would not be stupid enough to carbon copy something…for all we know it might just be the actual Gryphon dress albeit with some changes in the white border length… *wink*

    the funniest thing is that mahtani’s model in both the copycat outfits is the same model …. poor model is seen in copycat outfits… i feel sorry . . i ll say the model DESERVES the original outfits. :)
