“There's a huge difference from inspiration & Blatant copying & plagiarism!!!! Plagiarism is a criminal act!”

Ito ang galit na mensahe ni Rajo sa may-ari ng 37 LA online shop ng baguhang designer na si Mariella Garcia, na diumano'y gumaya ng kanyang Iris top.

Sa ilan pa niyang Twitter posts noong July 5, ipinakita ni Rajo ang screenshots ng Instagram account ng 37 LA (@37la_al73), kung saan makikita ang ilang babae na suot ang halos katulad ng Iris top design ni Rajo.

Ito ay tinawag na "Luna top" ng naturang fashion designer.

NOT ORIGINAL RAJO DESIGN? Dahil sa komento ng mga kaibigan ni Rajo, ilang followers ng 37 LA naman ang dumepensa sa young designer at sinabing hindi umano original na design ni Rajo ang Iris top.

Ayon sa ilang nag-comment, original design umano ng Australian fashion designer na si Dion Lee ang criss-cross crop top.
