The CFDA & eBay's New Bags Will Make You Never Want To 'Fake' It Again
March 14, 2013
Sally was right when she told Harry that most women at one time or another have faked it. Whether it was accidentally or on purpose, chances are you’ve probably used a fake handbag before. Well, here’s your chance to atone for your sins–the Council of Fashion Designers of America and eBay have teamed up (again) to protest counterfeit merchandise through their “You Can’t Fake Fashion” campaign. They commissioned 90 designers–including the likes of Parabal Gurung, Diane von Furstenberg and Alice + Olivia–to create original handbags for the project. The embellished bags will be sold on eBay at a starting price of $100. You can also buy the standard, non-designer tote for the “buy it now” price of $50.
This is the 3rd collaboration between the CDFA and eBay for the “You Can’t Fake Fashion” campaign (check out the handbags from 2012 and 2011). What do you think of this year’s bags? Click through the slideshow to see all of totes from the campaign. Then, support your favorite designers by shopping the bags on eBay this Monday, March 18 at 12pm (EST).
