As the music on Taylor Swift’s latest album “Folklore” continues to receive praise on social media, the product for its latest release came under fire. Amira Rasool, founder of retailer The Folklore, has accused Swift of ripping off the company’s logo for album merchandise – and now the Swift team is taking action.
Rasool posted about similar logos on its Instagram page last week. Her company is “an online concept store supplying Africa and the best modern design brands in the diaspora,” according to her Instagram.
Since then, Swift’s products appear to have missed “the” from its Folklore brand. On Thursday, Swift tweeted at Rasool, saying he would contribute to Rasool’s company and donate to the soon-to-be-launched Black in Fashion Council, which according to its website “was founded to represent and ensure the advancement of black individuals in the fashion and cosmetics industries.” . “
InStyle reported that Rasool said her lawyer had been in contact with Swift’s manager regarding the goods and that the team had taken “quick action” to rectify the problem. After the product was changed, Rasool praised Swift and her team “for acknowledging the damage caused by my company’s brand product.”
“I admit that she was a strong supporter of women defending their creative rights, so it was good to see that her team is on the same page,” Rasool tweeted.
Rasool did not immediately respond to CBS News’s request for comment.
