It is the most famous Versace dress. The garment that Jennifer López wore at the 2000 Grammy edition has even an entry on wikipedia and over the years it has been reverted by the Italian house as a classic in its collection. Such is its popularity that some low-cost fashion firms have created similar designs of the piece and at least one has ended up receiving a demand for it.

The legal battle between Fashion Nova and Versace due to a design very similar to the aforementioned piece ended this week a few days after reaching the courts.

Less than a week before the scheduled date of the trial, the firms involved have announced that the copyright infringement lawsuit has been resolved through an agreement between the two.

The Italian firm affirmed in November 2019 that the fast fashion firm copied the print and pattern of the famous Jungle Print dress and that it would therefore file a plagiarism lawsuit. Fashion Nova defended itself against Versace’s accusations by claiming that the print used featured “standard geometric figures and patterns”, previously used in the fashion industry. The conflict between the fashion houses now ends three years later without passing both through the courts.
