Because people in fashion have no chill

Just received a love letter from Dolce and Gabbana's lawyer accusing me and my people that we would steal their employees....... 1. This is a free country and everybody can choose by themselves who they want to work for !! 2. If people are happy at their job they don't think about leaving !!! 3. I really love and respect the brand dolce and gabbana , it was an inspiration for me and many others to start my business and to work in fashion !!!! @stefanogabbana @dolcegabbana It's is sad to say but everybody loves you until you become competition !!!! Since more than 15 years I work 24/7 on realizing my dream and building my company .... I respect everybody and I never received any support from this industry until today !!! I want to take this moment to apologize to absolutely "NOBODY" !!!!

There are still a few weeks left of the garbage fire we call 2016, which means many are scrambling to get in their last bits of mild scandal. This weekend was particularly (meh) dramatic for Philipp Plein, who got into it with Dolce & Gabbana.

The designer received a letter from the Italian house's lawyer about some alleged employee theft. It was an odd move on D&G's part—after all, you can’t really sue someone for poaching employees. Yes, it sucks to loose team members, what with the paperwork, and calling up HR, and making sure the payroll is up to speed, and then hiring replacements, ugh, then training the replacements…it’s a chore. But these things happen all the time, especially in fashion.

At any rate, Plein, instead of laughing off a complete non-issue, found great offense in this lurid accusation. He, an adult, took to Instagram to defend his honor, posting a picture of the letter with a caption pointing out that people can work for whomever they wish (true), people only stay at jobs the are happy with (also true), and that everyone only loves you until you’re their competition (fair points all around). He concluded with “I want to take this moment to apologize to absolutely "NOBODY."

There has been no response from Dolce & Gabbana’s camp thus far...probably because social media tantrums don't really warrant a response. Oh, wait...
