An Indian design studio has accused Christian Dior of plagarising one of its block prints.

New Delhi studio and store named People Tree has alleged that a yoga print featured on a red cotton dress designed by Christian Dior, the French luxury giant and worn by Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor on the cover of the January issue of Elle India magazine was very similar to one they created years ago.

The collective of artists and designers that was co-founded in 1990 by graphic designer Orijit Sen and his wife Gurpreet Sidhu sells handcrafted cotton clothing as well as jewellery and accessories made using natural and biodegradable material.

In a Facebook post on January 23, Sen shared photographs of the original design and the wood block used to create it.
