Bangladesh building collapse[edit]

On 24 April 2013, the eight-story Rana Plaza commercial building collapsed in Savar, a sub-district near Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. At least 1,127 people died and over 2,438 were injured.[11] The factory housed a number of separate garment factories employing around 5,000 people, several shops, and a bank[12] and manufactured apparel for brands including the Benetton Group, Joe Fresh,[13] The Children's Place, Primark, Monsoon, and DressBarn.[14][15] Of the 29 brands identified as having sourced products from the Rana Plaza factories, only 9 attended meetings held in November 2013 to agree a proposal on compensation to the victims. Several companies refused to sign including Walmart, Carrefour, Bonmarché,[citation needed] Mango, Auchan and Kik. The agreement was signed by Primark, Loblaw, Bonmarche[citation needed] and El Corte Ingles.[16]

Velvetine handbag lawsuit[edit]

In 2010, the French division of Mango got sued by Anne-Cécile Couétil, creator of the brand Velvetine, who argued that Mango copied two models of her handbags. Despite an attempt of protection via the INPI and similarities between her products and the ones of Mango, the creator lost the lawsuit. She was ordered to pay €6,000 to Mango.[17][18][19][20] On her blog, Couétil claimed she wanted to lodge an appeal.[21] Several bloggers were surprised by the judicial decision saying it's unfair.[22][23] The brand Mango reacted on Facebook via its official fanpage and answered also on the creator's blog.[21]
