Model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne is under fire from LA boutique Otherwild's designer Rachel Barks for not seeking permission to use the slogan "The Future is Female" on sweatshirts she's selling on Represent.com.
The product description reads: "A recreation of the original shirt worn by Alix Dobkin in 1975 in a photograph by Liza Cowan...The proceeds from every shirt sold support Girl Up's campaign to promote the health, safety, and education of girls in developing countries."
This however, has not appeased Barks who wrote on Instagram: "Otherwild's redesign and reissue of the FIF tees and buttons is protected under copyright law, which mandates that any reproduction of an existing known public work must be altered at least 20 per cent from the original.
"...Her actions ironically counter the very message of the slogan 'The Future is Female', and it's confounding that she would do this to a small queer feminist-owned business after purchasing the product from us just a few weeks ago."
