Apparel brand Kay Celine file suit against suspected counterfeiters
Jun '09
Well known women's luxury apparel brand Kay Celine recently filed a lawsuit for counterfeiting against national retailer and manufacturer Stein Mart and Sienna Rose. Kay Celine filed suit in the United States Federal District Court, for the Central District of California. In its complaint, Kay Celine alleges that Stein Mart and Sienna Rose are selling counterfeit garments.

Kay Celine's attorney, Farhad Novian, Head of the Trademark and Brand Strategies Division for Novian & Novian, LLP, a law firm in Century City, California, says that the complaint centers on Stein Mart and Sienna Rose intentionally and knowingly counterfeiting Kay Celine's distinctive and wildly successful beaded designs.

The complaint further alleges unfair competition, as the defendants' sale of counterfeit merchandise has hurt Kay Celine's sales of its garments which are featured at national luxury retailers including Nordstrom's and Bloomingdales.

Mr. Novian went on to say that the defendants have agreed to pull the infringing items from their shelves and discontinue sales. Kay Celine is seeking turnover of the remaining counterfeit garments, along with damages and an injunction against Stein Mart and Sienna Rose prohibiting sales of counterfeit garments in the future.
