Billie Faiers’s fashion label Minnie’s Boutique has hit back at a customer after they claimed the brand ‘ripped off’ Olivia Rubin with a £38 rainbow dress.
In a scathing comment the brand appeared to hit back at a fan’s claim they’d copied one of Olivia’s £250 dresses after Billie posed in the Minnie’s rainbow midi for a post on Instagram Stories.
This isn’t the first time fans have accused of Billie’s brand of ‘ripping off’ Olivia’s designs, as in January the star’s £40 rainbow cardigan appeared to be eerily similar to a £250 piece from Olivia’s range.

Raging: After a fan accused Billie’s label of copying Olivia’s designs in a comment on Minnie’s Boutique’s Instagram account, a response said the user needed to ‘get their facts right’
Among the comments one fan noted: ‘Wow it’s exactly the same as Olivia Rubin’s, going through her laundry again?’
But it was a comment on the official Minnie’s Boutique account that sparked a fiery response, with the label furiously denying any of their designs were a copy.
The comment said: ‘This is another copy of an Olivia Rubin dress! Why do you keep ripping off small designers?!!! Shocking behaviour.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Billie Faiers and Olivia Rubin for further comment.
In January Billie was also accused of ‘ripping off’ Olivia’s £250 rainbow cardigan with a £40 Minnie’s Boutique version.
The star ran into criticism from the designer herself, who urged her to ‘have some originality’ and said it was ‘another level’ of copying.
Olivia is famed for her rainbow aesthetic, specialising in knits, sequins and satin fabrics, with the celeb-favourite designer charging hundreds of pounds per piece.

The designer took to Instagram Stories to compare Billie’s MyNelly pastel stripe and pearl button cardigan, which retails for £40 with her own £250 Mika design.
Olivia wrote: ‘I don’t normally repost copies but I’m seeing it more and more; celebrities and other brands buying our clothes only to rip them off! This is just another level. Have some originality.’
She shared a second image of the two cardigans side by side, writing: ‘the colours, sequins, even down to the buttons.’

The Minnie’s Boutique cardigan is from a factory supplier.
The factory has confirmed with MailOnline that there needs to be six to seven different elements to a garment in order for it to be far enough away from another product on the market that could be classed as being similar.
Therefore, this cardigan meets all the legal requirements to be on sale and is in no way a form of plagiarism as the two pieces are clearly very different.
Billie’s design has a different colourway but has sequins running through the knit, just like Olivia’s. And hers has pearl flower buttons, while Olivia’s are diamanté flowers.

A spokesperson for Billie declined to comment to MailOnline and Olivia Rubin declined to comment further.
Back in September, 2019, Billie brought out an InTheStyle range which featured a one-shoulder swimsuit like the Norma Kamali one she had worn on her hen .
And the sexy number was very similar to the popular £225 Norma Kamali Mio version that Billie wore on her hen.
No doubt the Dancing On Ice contestant wanted to create something inclusive for any fans who might not be able to stretch to the designer price tags, with her version ringing in at just £22.
However, it remains to be seen what Norma Kamali thinks of how similar the two items are.
