Chinese fast fashion giant Shein faces dozens of design theft lawsuits

HONG KONG—In just a few years, Chinese clothing giant Shein has conquered the market of bargain-seeking Gen-Z shoppers by offering huge varieties of cheap clothes every day. Along the way, he garnered a long list of copyright theft complaints from major brands and boutique designers.

Valued at more than $100 billion and backed by big-name investors such as Sequoia Capital China and General Atlantic, Shein – pronounced “she-in” – has grown by leaps and bounds. Its appeal includes discounted prices, successful links with online influencers and an ever-changing wardrobe of up to 6,000 new items daily.
