WESTWOOD, N.J. -- A Westwood designer who uses her clothing to raise money for charity has beaten a retail giant in battle without firing a single shot, according to fortune.com.
Gap Inc. and its Athleta brand had been marketing several types of yoga pants that were nearly the same design as those produced by K-Deer , a local activewear company that produces multiple types of yoga pants and donates a portion of the sales to various causes, according to fortune.com.
After K-Deer fans brought Gap's unoriginal design to the forefront via social networking websites, fortune.com began investigating. Gap pulled the pants after being contacted by a reporter seeking to write about the pants, according to fortune.com.
The owner of K-Deer, Kristine Deer, said she has no intention to file legal proceedings against the Gap, according to fortune.com.
