Subject: What do you think?

Do you think it is ok for dressmakers to post photos of dancers on their website/Facebook that include dancers wearing dresses they did not make?
Personally I would never post photos of dancers in another designer's dress on my website, and if a customer sent me a photo of multiple dancers I would either crop out dresses that were not mine or not post the photo.
It was brought to my attention that a BNDM has a photo on Facebook that includes a dancer wearing one of my dresses. Someone commented about how all the amazing dresses were designed by this BNDM and the BNDM did not post a corrective comment saying that some are not the BNDM's dresses. I am annoyed.
What are your thoughts?

Could you not just post a photo of your dress on your Facebook page? I believe people generally do look at many of the dressmakers' sites, not only the BNDM sites. I'm much more offended by being accused of copying a BN dress, when I haven't, than in being photographed together with BN dresses!

One of my dresses is on the same picture, thought it was funny and yes a little annoying. (NT)SNDFriday, November 28, 04:18:33pm

NO It is not ok for a dressmaker to post photos of dresses they did not make to their Facebook page, website, or any other site, without clarifying that they did not make the dress. It can give potential customers the impression that the work was done by the dressmaker posting the photos. If a new customer books an order based on what they think was produced by the dressmaker posting the photo, well, that might be considered fraud, wouldn't it? Minimally it would be unethical and unprofessional. (NT).Saturday, November 29, 08:41:37am

I would send the bndm a private message requesting that they either remove the photo or post a correction stating which dress is yours. Orpost a reply to the photo yourself.Sunday, November 30, 11:08:02pm
