Celebrity Kim Kardashian West has been awarded $US2.7 million - about $A3.8 million- - in her lawsuit against a so-called "fast fashion" brand she accused of ripping off her outfits.

Kardashian West took retailer Missguided USA to court in California, alleging it used her celebrity to sell clothes and was "notorious" for "knocking off" designer items she wore.

In February , the reality TV star slammed so-called "fast fashion" brands who she said sell similar designs hours after she is pictured wearing them.

She tweeted: "It's devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas".

"I've watched these companies profit off my husband's work for years and now that it's also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.

Kardashian West said her relationships with designers are "very important to me" and dismissed internet rumours she worked with online fashion outlets to "leak" the clothes to them.
