KYLIE Jenner has been accused of taking the concept for her new Khy fashion line from another fashion designer.
The Hulu star was slammed by Betsy Johnson – not to be confused with the well-known brand Betsey Johnson – on social media.

Betsy, a designer for Products Ltd., took to her Instagram Story to slam Kylie, 26.
She accused the Kylie Cosmetics founder of taking her ideas and profiting off them with her Khy fashion range.
In one Story post she wrote: “We emailed Kylie and all her team @products.ltd concept and language and a line sheet 6 MONTHS AGO.
“INTERESTING CONCEPT KYLIE:…INTERESTING.”
The post continued: “Thanks for the co-sign. F**k your support.”
She also posted a photo of a spreadsheet containing information about her student loan repayment.
The Instagram Story revealed that she was due to repay £48,294.43.
Betsy, who has worked as a creative director, stylist, and consultant with brands like Luis De Javier and Balenciaga, complained: “While I stare @ my student debt.
“Worked my a** off for this. Like so many other working-class kids who bust their a** for expertise they weren’t born into to realize their ideas.”
Kylie partnered with an independent label called Namilia on Khy.
Betsy slammed them as well, calling it a “trash move.”
She later posted a screengrab of a post from the Financial Times about the launch of Kylie’s brand.
Betsy added several middle finger emojis to the post.
She finished her online tirade with another post featuring a message she got from a user whose anonymity she protected.
It read: “Wait sis…why is the caption giving me products ltd concept tease.
“?!!!! did you think this or am I bugging.”
FASHION FAUX PAS
Kylie has not responded to Betsy’s accusations.
She did, however, speak on her newest business venture in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
The Kardashians star described her early Khy designs as “King Kylie – who I am at my core.”
She went on to say: “Creatively I have such a strong vision of what I want to look like and what I want to do and what I want to wear.
“There’s really no one telling me what to do.”
The collection includes “faux leather pants, coats, tops, and base layers,” according to a press release.
Prices for pieces in the line range from $48 to $198 and sizes run from XXS to 4X.
Khy is set to debut on November 1 but fans can sign up for early access to pieces on the brand’s website.
Kylie shared an early look at her Khy fashion brand on Instagram.
The clothing company’s Instagram feed shared sultry snaps of the founder wearing a leather trench coat.
In the pics, the mom of two was seen glammed up with her lips covered in red product as she sat on the floor.
Kylie’s hair was styled in a messy, curly style that flowed over one side of her jacket.
She placed her hands near her zipper as she shot a stern-looking glance at the camera.
The reality star showed off her long legs as she crossed them a teased her red heels.
Social media sleuths were distracted by one detail in the pics, however.
In the comments section, onlookers noticed that Kylie had a scary-looking mark on her leg.
One person wondered: “If you do a zoom on Kylie’s leg, she has a cut! What happened?”
Another added: “Oh my god! I think it’s just a scar!”
A third commenter reacted with: “It’s her but it also doesn’t look like her. Where did that thing on her leg come from?”
A fourth fan chimed in: “This is concerning for me! did she get an allergic reaction to the faux leather?”
Another commenter suggested: “It was from a scary accident from when she was a kid. Caused from her childhood.”
In a 2011 interview with Celebuzz, Kylie revealed that she got the scar during an intense game of hide and seek.
