Designer Studio Sues Target Over Dress

New York City, Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg’s company sued Target Corp. on Thursday, alleging the discount retailer is selling dresses that too closely mimic the pattern from one of her signature dresses.

Diane von Furstenberg Studio LP, in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan, alleged the retailer is selling a style of dress that bears a print nearly identical to her trademarked "Spotted Frog" design.

The lawsuit said Furstenberg’s company sent a notice to Target on Friday and the dress was removed from the retailer’s Web site on Wednesday. However, the dress is still being sold at Target retail stores, the complaint said.
