Unfortunately, they can't because he's not doing anything illegal.

That's a bit stupid because certain designers created the foundation for nowadays fashion so basically Dior and Chanel could sue the entire fashion world now?

They can do something legal, but I'm pretty sure the design has to be undeniably copied; we're talking finishings as well as cut, fabric, silhouette, etc.
As this thread proves, it's pretty easy to copy most of the elements and just change one or two things (the fabric, the colour, the length..) to make it different and new - this applies not only to trend-following designers but also to designers redoing their own designs (bonjour Lagerfeld for the past thirty years).
The idea of copying and regurgitating is the entire basis of fashion today..
