Remember when 61 year old seamstress and owner of World Tricot, Carmen Colle, sued Chanel for copying a crochet pattern?

Since this happened back in 2009, the answer is probably no, but we do!

Almost 3 years later, the Paris Court of Appeal ordered Chanel to fork over $258,400 to its former suppliers on Friday.

The fashion house hasn’t decided if it will appeal, but since Friday's ruling overturned a previous lawsuit, we wouldn't be surprised if they did.

Stay tuned…
