Louis Vuitton – Nadia Plesner Getting Suede for Art

By Sascha May 9th, 2008

 Nadia Plesner Last year Nadia Plesner started a Simple campaign to raise awareness of the ongoing genocide in Darfur and to raise money for the helping organization “Divest for Darfur”.

On February 13, 2008, Nadia received a letter from Louis Vuitton’s, asking her to firmly end the campaign immediately, as they believe one of their products is being portrayed in the illustration.

Nadia Plesner is standing up for her artistic freedom to express her view of the world as she sees it without restrictions from anybody.

On February 20, 2008, she informed Louis Vuitton’s Intellectual Property Director that she intend to continue her campaign to support the victims of Darfur.

Nadia Plesner startet her own campaige in 2007 to support the Victims of Darfur. 100% of the takings from the t-shirt and poster are donated to Darfur.

    Go Nadia

    What a load of rubbish! I’m sure she will win because Vuitton’s is also indirectly not supporting the cause which is even worse for their brand. They should know that.

    They were probably looking for a quick retreat from Nadia. Will be interesting to see what the outcome will be!!

    Good luck Nadia

    Good point… If Nadia gets enough publicity they will probably just retreat quietly!
