Update On Pin-up Girl Clothing Drama: Micheline Pitt Sues Lauren Byrnes

So many fellow pin-ups have asked me to do an update on my last article I did about PUG. There was roomer going around that the owner of PUG, Laura Byrnes, was sued by Micheline Pitt. A designer and model that used to work for her.

So many fellow pin-ups have asked me to do an update on my last article I did about PUG. There was roomer going around that the owner of the Pug, Laura Byrnes, was sued by Micheline Pitt. A designer and model that used to work for her.     Luara Byrenes has been in hot water ever since the Chinese New Year drama that occurred in 2017. She was accused of culturally appropriating Asian culture and being rude to customers and co-workers who brought it to her attention. And when it was brought to her attention, she took the collection down without addressing the issue first. But she has since spoken out on it:   Many didn't accept her apology - Stating that it seem forced, sarcastic, and insensitive. This controversy caused many of her ex-workers to come out and tell their negative experiences working for her; causing Luara's company to have 2.2 star review on Glassdoor. Here is what some of them had to say:                In one of the complaints, the ex-worker claimed that Luara's company has several lawsuits. Witch seems to be referencing the one with Micheline Pitt. As it's the only one I could find so-far (Granted, I didn't do much research so feel free to correct me in the comments.) Basically, Micheline Pitt used to work for Luara before she started a company of her own. She stated in the lawsuit that she left due to "Multiple issue throughout her employment." She also claimed that after she left, Luara allegedly told people that she still worked for her.   And went on to allegedly have 10,000 advertising postcards in Pitt's trademarked name and likeness. When she agreed to stop. Pitt believed that she continued to do so in order to sabotage her clothing line that was supposed to debut. She used a time when she released  a new line of "monster prints and fetish prints." Shortly after, PUG reissued the Deadly Dames clothing line that also contained monster and fetish prints. Pitt believed Luara did it on purpose to profit off of her announcement. Pitt also went on to claim that Luara did not pay her accordingly for her work. You can read more details on the case here.
