Buyer Beware: Designer Knockoffs

Nothing worse, in the fashion community, than designer knockoffs. I don’t understand why anyone would knowingly buy a knockoff. The quality is complete shit and is bound to fall apart at the seems in a matter of weeks if not days.

I especially despise it when sellers try to pass of fakes as legit designer pieces. Auction sites are littered with a shit ton of designer fakes. It makes the designer look bad when a cheaply made garment is adorned with their designer label, and it isn’t fair to the buyer. Grrrrr Argh!
