Sonam Kapoor claps back after Diet Sabya claimed that Anamika Khanna lifted inspiration for her 'AK-OK' signature style
Fashion is often about visualisation, but unfortunately, the fashion industry off late has been harping on inspiration rather than imagination. Which is why we all heaved a sigh of relief when the internet gave us Diet Sabya and its savageness that called out plagiarism and #GUTS of people who would lift without guilt. However, how much of anything is too much? We are urged to ask, case in point a recent example that has left B-town fashionistas, the Kapoor sister – Sonam and Rhea miffed and disappointed.
It all began when Diet Sabya took to its handle to diss designer Anamika Khanna and her recent signature style 'Everything is AK- OK'. The caption read, "We know this is going to cause major heartburn, but we simply cannot ignore the fact that @anamikakhanna.in’s AK-OK is TOO CLOSE in concept to the Jordans @voguemagazine launched in June 2018, with AW-OK. What would Anna say? ? Thoughts?"

But Sonam and Rhea didn't take it lying down, they gave it back in comments with deets about how it was the designer's sons who kinda came up with it after she suffered a prolonged ailment.
Not just that, Sonam even took to Insta to post a long heartfelt message for her designer and friends Anamika. She posted, "My dear friend @anamikakhanna.in had gone through a terrible illness in the last year. Her beautiful twins banded together and surrounded her gave her comfort and inspiration. The common slang that is used amongst people is A-Ok in America. Viraj and Vishesh who just returned from America used the same term playfully with their mom when she was down, saying “mom everything is going to be AK-OK” dear Anamiks I’m so glad everything is eventually AK-OK im so so fortunate to be your muse and @rheakapoor and I get to collaborate with you. I hope I never take you for granted. Love you so much! I shed a tear when I wore this outfit because I know it was inspired by your boys and they gave you strength during your lowest. ❤️❤️❤️"
