Roberto Cavalli has accused Michael Kors of copying his designs.

The Italian designer has relaunched his attack on the American designer after calling him out on plagiarism last year, and is infuriated that the fashion industry has not held him accountable for what he thinks is a "scandal."

Speaking to Miami's Haute Living magazine, Cavalli said: "Now you have designers and you have Zara, which is meant to be fast and sold at a very cheap price, so you expect [copying.] But Mr Michael Kors, he copies everything! It's really a scandal and nobody has the courage to say anything. It's really not fair."

While Kors is yet to comment on the accusations, Cavalli did not expand on which collections he feels the American designer has plagiarised and instead took aim at the fashion industry's lack of creativity in recent years.

He fumed: "Fashion is just about money now. There's no evolution. In the 18th and 19th centuries, fashion used to completely change every 20 years. Totally new silhouettes, etc. Now, there is less creativity. There's been nothing truly new since the 1950s, except many sneakers [trainers]."
