Let me start by saying that I love this campaign, I believe it’s the most effective way of keeping us from buying fake products. The eBay and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have teamed up to fight against fake goods in fashion industry. No matter how much effort is put in making a fake seem original, it’ll always different, so let’s be careful and attentive out there when we buy something.
So, eBay has a limited edition collection of “You can’t fake fashion” bags approved by the CFDA in order to raise awareness and stop counterfeiting of luxury bags and celebrate original design- it’s a pretty interesting campaign, if I may add.
The first annual “You can’t fake Fashion Totes” sold the bags in just 48 hours, so if you want to make it to the second annual totes, you better hurry. Over 75 CFDA designers created one-of-a-kind designs of the tote; the collection ranges from designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Robert Geller, Tory Burch, Rachel Roy, Tommy Hilfiger and etc. There are four different shapes available; you get a variety of genuine, original trademarks, so you definitely can find something to your liking.
The eBay x CFDA ‘You Can’t Fake Fashion’ Designer Bags collection is absolutely adorable; with vivid, natural colors, totally perfect for summer season. There is a myriad of beautiful designs, very comfy and authentic. The CFDA continues to work to protect designers’ intellectual property and fight against counterfeits, so you still have time to be a part of the campaign. Take a look at the collection, choose your favorite bag (mine for instance is the Peter Som light pink bag) and settle for a purchase hunt on eBay. In conclusion, all proceeds from the bags benefit the CFDA foundation- providing financial support for young designers in early stages of their career.
