The Kids Supply, the children's clothing line from Kardashian and Kanye West, is under fire from Instagram account Diet Prada after it pointed out the similarities between a few of Kids Supply's products and that of major design houses. A representative of Kids Supply acknowledged the alleged similarities, indeed, but claimed that the act was meant to be a homage.

'AND that one-of-a-kind custom sequin @vetements_official dress made specially for North, Great message for the little ones!' it continued.

Then images of Kim's designs are placed side-by-side with the original to show how closely they resembled each other.

Fashion nerds flew into a frenzy on Monday, claiming that Kim Kardashian had ripped off ultra chic designers Rei Kawakubo and Demna Gvasalia for her children's line, Kids Supply.

Kardashian responded to the accusations via a representative who told Page Six that the designs were created as an "homage" to the original designers, which is why Kardashian made a decision to name pieces "The Demna" and "The Rei". Namely a Commes des Garçons jacket and a Vetements dress.

'We chose to release the Demna dress after making one on our own for North because it got such a great reaction and an overflow of people wanting it for their own children.

You might recognize the silver dress from Kim and North West's matching mommy-and-me moment last September. "The Rei jacket was a mixture of some of our favorite souvenir jacket art.We named it the Rei Jacket out of the utmost respect for her".

A representative for The Kids Supply told Page Six that the pieces are "homages" rather than copies, and that their names indicate that they're paying tribute to the designers in question. They noticed that a couple of pieces from the collection were reminiscent of other designer pieces, some of which had been previously worn by Kim's own offspring, North and Saint.
