I'm not accusing the people at the top of the chain, but they need to look at just what their in house design team does. Carola Van Dykes beautiful designs have been royally ripped off by them too - Debenhams, look at who you are paying - you are paying them to steal. I would give you - yes give you one of my designs rather than you pay some graduate with no ideas of their own little. Because as a true artist - designer I have shed loads of ideas and thoughts - I don't need to rip off ideas.
STOP STEALING IDEAS FROM THOSE THAT HAVE THEM IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY OF YOUR OWN YOU ARE IN THE WRONG JOB.
and by the way - maybe you need to check just how educated they are too - London Bridge? no its Tower Bridge Littlewoods - sorry Debenhams!
