Jeremy Scott seems to have found himself in some hot water!
The designer and current creative director of Moschino is being sued, along with the whole label, by street artist Rime aka Joseph Tierney, for allegedly copying his artwork.

In fact, Rime filed the suit against Jeremy in reference to the celeb and cult fave label's Fall 2015 collection, but specifically a design seen on the dress Katy Perry wore to this year's Met Gala (above)!
And according to the lawsuit:
"Rime is a well-known artist. Defendants Moschino and Jeremy Scott—two household names in high fashion—inexplicably placed Rime's art on their highest-profile apparel without his knowledge or consent. Defendants paid Ms. Perry to advertise and display the clothing at the Gala. Not only did Ms. Perry and defendant Scott advertise, wear, and display the clothing at the event, they arrived at the event in a spray painted Rolls Royce, and even carried around Moschino branded cans of fake spray paint during the event, as if defendants were responsible for the artwork."
We highly doubt anyone thought they were responsible for creating the artwork on their outfits by hand, but we understand that's only a small portion of the bigger point here.
Do you think Moschino copied his design??
