A fashion designer called a member of the Kardashian family via Instagram over the weekend.
British designer Christian Cowan said on his Instagram account on Sunday that a sparkling blue dress he loaned to Khloe Kardashian was for sale on the family’s resale site, Kardashian Kloset. He wrote the message above a screenshot of the dress list, which has since vanished from its history after being posted for 24 hours.
“@khloekardashian why my runway samples I loaned you are being sold on your website,” Cowan wrote in an Instagram story. “We sent three emails and got no response.”
At the time of writing, no Christian Cowan clothing is available for purchase from the Kardashian Kloset website.
The Christian Cowan dress was previously listed on the Kardashian family website for $ 1,300, Page Six reported, but all of the designer’s items appear to have since been taken from Kardashian Kloset. According to the post, Kardashian was unaware the dress was on loan to her.
“The dress was given to her through her stylist without a loan mention and was never asked to return it,” an anonymous source told Page Six.
The dress in question was created for Christian Cowan’s 2019 Powerpuff Girls Collection. He launched the fashion line at the City Market Social House in Los Angeles, Calif. On March 8, 2019. The collection was filled with pink, blue, and green designs, all inspired by animated superheroes.
At the time, Cowan told InStyle that the collection was created with the empowerment of women in mind.
Janelle Miller appears to have been Kardashian’s stylist at the time; she gave an interview to People about what it’s like to work with the celebrity in April 2019, a month after the Christian Cowan dress debuted on the runway.
Representatives for Kardashian, Cowan and Miller did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.

As of this writing, pieces from the wardrobes of Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian are available.
