I'm not very familiar with Audrey Kitching or anyhting (besides knowing thats she's a model), but I do not think it is right to dedicate a blog about her mistakes or whatever. Its highly immature of you to make a blog about hating her. What if someone made one about hating you? Would that feel good? I don't know you but I'm sure it would not feel good. It's not right to hate. Hate is tearing our world apart.I'm sorry if I'm pissing you off, but I felt like something needed to be said.
Haha, these are not “mistakes.” And it’s not like we’re digging up shit on somebody’s past to defame her, this (true and otherwise publicly available) information is all pretty appropriate because it shows that she has not changed her ways - She’s still stealing the work of artists and other bloggers and profiting off of it.
This isn’t a “hate blog.” If you want a hate site go to efagz, you’ll find plenty of relevant and meaningful reviews of her hair and body shape there!
i just wanted to write my coco de couer experience because it is frustrating to not get your things but i won a competition of hers which was a free give away and i did eventually get the shirts (to the UK) after about 2 and a half months so just to hopefully put peoples minds at rest not to worry too much if they don't come straight away and i hope everyone gets their things x
Anyone who has issues with any of Audrey's shops need to report her to the hosts of her websites. (bigcartel i believe) Let them know that she is basically running a scam. If enough people email them, they will shut down her site.
I didn’t want to resort to posting here, but here goes :( I ordered 4 Tokyolux shirts on the 14th OF OCTOBER. I live in the UK, so waited the 2-3 weeks for shipping, then emailed them. I got a tracking number a week later, which was useless as the status was always ‘Electronic Shipping info received’ Of course, after these 2-3 weeks, it was too late to launch a PayPal dispute. I emailed every fortnight, with NO RESPONSES. Until the 24th JANUARY, when I got a reply saying they would ‘look into it’. I have responded to this twice since and had no reply. It has been 18 weeks since I placed my order. I have been made to feel stupid and helpless in this, does anyone have any suggestions??
I ordered a shirt from her Coco De Coeur site and it arrived with a rip in the front of it, I emailed her and she responded saying "omg I'm so sorry I'll send you a new one", I waited a few weeks, nothing came so I emailed again- got a one-line response saying she'd "send a new one". MORE weeks past and nothing came in the mail, so again, I sent an email, all she says in response it "I sent it to you I thought you received it" no tracking number, & wouldn't respond to anymore emails after that!
Filed a dispute against Coco de Couer today since it's been 17 days since my order with no receipt of my items or response to my two emails. Apparently, according to other's reviews, that seems to me the magic key to getting the shit you paid for so we'll see.
You filed it with PayPal? Let us know what happens.
I've ordered something from Coco de Couer, it's been two weeks exactly and it hasn't arrived. Normally this would not faze me (some clothing companies take 2-3 weeks to get an item to you), but she hasn't responded to either of my two emails asking for an idea of when the things might arrive, which is suspicious to me since when I sent her an email before making a purchase I received a response almost immediately. I sent both my emails on weedays as well, one last week and one yesterday wtf.
ive been a huge audrey fan for years and im so shocked at just how many people she's nicked ideas from. Obviously, designers take inspiration from other people. But there's 'emulating' something and then there's just blatent copying. She doesn't even change photoshoot ideas to suit her own style! Gutted cause i really respect her. Thanks for this blog, i now know not to order from her.
i ordered a shirt from coco de coeur 2 weeks BEFORE CHRISTMAS. i've emailed her company multiple times but still no response. i've gone on her formspring, STILL NO RESPONSE, the fact that she got the money for what i bought and never sent me the item is really pissing me off.
In one of her recent posts on her blog called 'Vice Magazine GIF Shoot' she literally says: "Vice magazine recently did a photo shoot with the intention of turing it into GIFS. I love this idea, totally staling it for a shoot in near future. SICK."
vice mag is far from the first to do this so whatever, i’m not gonna hate on her for choosing to use a medium that’s basically already tired
Hi, I find this blog very intersting! I was just wondering who Audrey stole her images and ideas from? I looked all over this page, but I couldn't find any names (only the one girl with the Cat Flag shirt). You should find out who made the orginal images and then put their names here because they deserve to be credited. There was one story on this page where, I think, somebody sent Audrey a design for a shirt or whatever and she never credited him. You should put his name/website here! xoxo
Actually I’ve included the names of many designers whose ideas have been “adopted” by Audrey.
I've found this blog to be productively informative and backed up with good examples. It seemed like I was the only one who could spot the craftily ripped off fashion sense and 'creativity' Audrey seems to express on her numerous blogs and I hope this blog spreads damn good awareness of her lacking majorly in the above statements because after all it is one thing to piggy back off the work of others' and GIVE CREDIT but its a whole different level of shitty to just completely rip it off!
I wouldn't call this a hate blog, a hate blog is when you post shit about someone with absolutely no excuse other than that you don't like them. You aren't doing that. You have a legitimate reason to post shit about her, she's a scammer and a thief. Seriously, I was thinking about ordering some stuff but then I found this tumblr and I'm SO glad I didn't.
you're quite pathetic if you have nothing better to do than make a hate blog about someone. you honestly have issues, and i feel sorry for you, but you don't need to take it out on someone else. seriously, you should try doing something constructive with your time. get a hobby, make art, play a sport, whatever you're into. but really theres no need to do this, its really a crazy waste.
Scamming apologists like you always seem to assume we have no direction in life…
I was emailed by Audrey saying i won a contest from her. it has now been over 3 months and i haven't received the jewelry that i won. It's aggravating because she made it seem like i would get it ASAP. and i never received the merchandise from her.
Yikes that’s awful. Was this a public contest on her Buzznet or anything?
oh my god on formspring, I was telling her my opinion on her new Tokyolux Line "Velvet Glam" and she bitched me out. I said too, how I looked up to her and admired her and shit. Whatever. Half of it was stolen from Wildfox.
The exact same thing happened to me when ordering from tokyolux. I had sent four emails over the course of two weeks to multiple email addresses and got nothing back, when my it had turned into a month of my item not arriving. I opened a paypal dispute and soon after my items arrived. What was crazy to me, is that she shipped from California to California. There is no way in hell it should have taken 2 months for my item to arrive. buyer beware
Hi, I said a while ago that I had ordered and not gotten anything after a month... after opening a dispute my items arrived a few days later, albeit from California when I thought she'd be shipping out of New York. Her 'free gift' for lateness was a sticker. Really beat-up envelope, no paperwork or information inside, just heart-shaped glitter. Shirt is fairly nice but I'd never order from her again after the fiasco.
This is to the person who said they reported her to the BBB... the BBB doesn't have any power. It's just a watchdog group, it can't do anything. It's the same thing as posting a review on yelp or another website.
My brother and I recently came upon your blog. I really hope she gets exposed as for what she truly is, an unoriginal thief. I believe my brother has e-mailed you on regards of this but she also stole his ideas and creations calling them her own, giving him no credit or rewards whatsoever, and when confronted about it, her response was "this is how the industry works". It angers me that she calls herself a "designer" when there are real talented people out there that she is taking away from.xoxo
Yeah I’ve seen her respond to complaints with “this is just the way it is” before and it sucks. She recognizes that the way she treats people is a problem but still perpetuates that behavior.
The other day Felicity aka punkrockmermaid posted a picture of my friend, and I asked her to credit it. She was great and let me know that Audrey Kitching had posted it originally, so I let Chloe know and she was really happy but obviously if there’s no credit there, it’s not good exposure for her.
She politely contacted Audrey and was ignored, then a few days later sent a slightly more to the point message to be met with a condescening ‘i have a life y’know, i can’t reply to anything” “Then what the hell are you talking about” and “send me the link and i’ll delete it”
Wow. Chloe puts a lot of effort into her career and is trying to make something of herself. It’s not much to ask to get credit on an image - fair enough she didn’t know where it came from originally but once someone tells you, you just do it…you don’t act like a total bitch about it.
Oh and now Audrey kitching fan girls are sending Chloe abusive tweets. Christ on a stick people are wankers. I can’t even handle it. I’m so sick of everyone being horrible.
Furthermore than that, I commented on the image saying ‘Since Audrey refuses to credit this or delete it, I’ll just leave the credits for this image here in a comment, for all the people who worked long and hard on this shoot.’ and left credits, and THE COMMENT HAS BEEN DELETED. Seriously, I’ve never encountered someone more hellbent on copyright infringement than Audrey Kitching. What the hell.
Contacted Audrey Kitching on twitter because she used one of my modeling photos in an ‘inspiration’ post. I was really nice, said that I’m an upcoming model and I’d really appreciate being credited. I got no response for a few days, even though she’d been on twitter every 2 hours or so in that…
Ordered a couple things from her site and it was a nightmare! After three months, I still didn't receive anything and I constantly had to email her about it. She (or whoever I emailed) kept coming up with excuses and telling me that they had to remade the shirt, etc. They finally got around to sending me what I paid for. Anyway, I reported her company to the Better Business Bureau and had talked to several people who went through the same problem of not receiving the things they paid for...
She had a design in which she had a "hand written" style "you hurt cats I hurt you". The design was the same basic style and concept of a shirt by the balletcats that released years earlier that said "you hurt cats I (image of a gun) you in the head".
