Diet Prada is the Daring Fashion Duo Who Call Out Major Fashion Brands on Their Expensive Knockoffs

In the world of fashion, sometimes what we see is what we get, and knowing how the world of fashion works, they can be cutthroat at times or outright offensive. Hence why many people within the industry might be too scared or oblivious to raise their voices on them when it’s due. However, one Instagram account had the balls to call out on many high-end brands and their superficial antics, especially their thing with stealing ideas from young designers. They go by the handle Diet Prada.

They have been dubbed as “fashion police” and “the most important fashion critic of today,” but they remained anonymous for quiet a while, until The Fashion Law let that cat out of the bag on this one. The snarky, outspoken, and definitely witty duo behind the shadiest fashion Instagram account are Tony Liu and Lindsey Schuyler.

Beginning as a low-key shade platform that these two share to call out on the copy-cats of the fashion industry, like Gucci, JW Anderson, Victoria Secret, and many more, over the years since they started back in 2014, they’ve received a huge following of celebrities and brands. Namely Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Kendall Jenner, and a whole lot more.

Here’s a list of posts that will definitely have your jaw dropping at their call outs. Make way for tea!

Along with their bravery comes several expected reactions from the noted brands who they’ve namedropped, and it’s surprising how they managed to gain more goodness out of it. When Diet Prada called out Gucci for explicitly copying Harlem tailor and designer Dapper Dan for their 2018 resort collection, two unexpected things happened: first, Gucci started making business with Dapper Dan, and second, Diet Prada took over Gucci’s Instagram Stories during their Spring 2018 fashion show. Aside from that, their popularity has also given them exclusive invites to exclusive fashion shows and even some debuts of the latest collections.

Last December, Diet Prada also called out a brand closer to home, Singapore’s Exhibit Store.

Those are just a glimpse of their snarky posts. As their following grows (currently 205k followers), they shed light upon rising social issues within the fashion industry itself as well by covering stories of sexual harassment and abuse within the modelling industries, showing support towards LGBTQ community, and more. Aside from raising awareness, they also praise or give credit when it’s a deserved one. For example, applauding model Alek Wek, a South Sudanese-British model, who was featured on the cover of Vogue Ukraine for their January 2018 issue, making her the first successful fashion model with dark skin and sub-Saharan features to land on the cover.
