She pointed out that there was, in fact, a brand with the name “Calni Kean.”
“First of all, there is a brand called Calni Kean, so please leave me alone,” Georgina wrote in response to the controversy.
Google’s search results reveal that Calni Kean specializes in women’s sports and fitness attire, particularly focusing on vest-style shockproof bras, with relatively lower popularity.
The attire costs between Sh3000 and Sh4000 before shipping.
It’s worth noting that when you search for the brand, you come across results for the well-known American fashion powerhouse Calvin Klein.
It’s a frequent occurrence for celebrities to opt for replica or imitation designer clothing, accessories, or jewelry.
One primary factor motivating celebrities to choose replica items is budget constraints.
These replicas often serve as more budget-friendly alternatives to genuine designer pieces.
Additionally, certain celebrities may don imitation designer items as a means of making a fashion statement.
Their aim may be to display a particular style or aesthetic without necessarily aligning with or possessing the authentic designer item.
