You can't fake fashion

"Since 2011, CFDA has partnered with eBay to advance the You Can't Fake Fashion initiative. Educating shoppers about the dangers of counterfeits is now more important than ever, and it's an issue that's incredibly important to both eBay and CFDA. With 90 designers on board this year, each customizing a bag as one-of-a-kind to show their support, eBay and CFDA are dedicated to protecting original design and the integrity of the fashion industry."
Steven Kolb,
Chief Executive Officer, CFDA


After two successful collaborations, eBay and the CFDA are working together once again to raise awareness against counterfeit goods and celebrate original design within the fashion industry. Following an exclusive preview during New York Fashion Week S/S 2013, the new collection of totes, including one-of-a-kind designer totes customized by 90 of America's foremost designers, will be sold exclusively on eBay beginning March 18, with all proceeds benefitting the CFDA Foundation.


Combating the supply and demand for counterfeits and those who manufacture and distribute such items requires the coordinated efforts of the government, the fashion industry, law enforcement, businesses, and Internet users like you. As a major destination for fashion shoppers, eBay is committed to partnering to fight the global trade of counterfeits. Here is how eBay is helping to create a counterfeit-free marketplace:

On eBay, a designer bag is sold every 4 minutes. eBay Fashion offers a vast selection of authentic fashion at a great value, ranging from major designer brands to luxury labels and emerging young talent, in addition to exclusive collections from designers like Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam, Alexander Wang, Rebecca Minkoff, and the 2012 eBay Holiday Collective designers: Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi.
