“She literally stole my Magnolia.”

Jordan Weingartner, an independent jewelry designer in Florida who created the Magnolia Collection, claims that her logo is being used in Reese Witherspoon’s clothing line and has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the actress, Richard Johnson of Page Six reports.

The article says that Witherspoon is being sued for copyright and trademark infringement because the logo that her fashion company is using is nearly identical to Weingartner’s flower-shaped insignia. “She literally stole my Magnolia,” says Weingartner, who designed the logo in 2008. “My design actually looks nothing like a magnolia, and Draper James not only took the design, but also decided to call it a magnolia.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
