World Tricot To Appeal The Chanel Crochet Verdict – 18/12/09

The Chanel crochet court case just won’t ‘dye’ down. We read in WWD Fashion that World Tricot plans to appeal a French court’s recent ruling, which cleared Chanel of counterfeit charges on a crochet pattern.

Last week, this lawsuit resulted in Chanel being ordered to pay Carmen Colle from World Tricot 400,000 euros (AU $640,000) for “abusive termination” of her contract. See the MO Down on November 12 and December 16 for the full story.
