Fashion has its SUITS

The fashion industry has been having its share of drama that's been going around lately, i.e. John Galiano. Although, that is not nearly as drama-filled and this situation. This has to do with copyright infringement.

The "red sole" has been a Christian Louboutin signature since he stepped on the fashion scene with his boutique in 1991.  In 2008, Louboutin trademarked the design here in America.
