Original branded or fake fashion ?

No doubt that world class brands of fashion ( clothes, bags, eyewear, footwear, etc) sell very good quality and designs. Those products will be stunning among those non-branded things. Everybody would love to have such lovely things, especially for fashion lover. The bad news is only small group of people can afford to buy it. It's no secret anymore that a lot of middle-bottom liner manufacturers are trying to make good money out of fashion trend and branded pride. Here in Asia ( am not sure if there are many of such fake items in US or Europe), many sellers offer the 'fake-branded' items with quality vary from the good ones that are so close to the original quality, to the medium quality. Well, I am not counting the very cheap low quality products that are easily recognized as fake ones. Pretending that all of us here can afford to buy those sky-high prices of branded things, are you willing to spend money on that or you prefer to buy the good quality but fake and much cheaper ones? What's the reason for that? Would love to see the discussion here.

i think i will buy both kinda items branded as well as cheap. you believe it or not but i think you get much more fashionable items that are fake then the branded one's. i think it's great to buy fake items as well m not saying you should always buy it from there but you can it's good sometimes.

I wouldn't buy "designer" labels or things that were pretending to be designer. I couldn't care less about labels - my criteria are comfort and cost.

No, I still wouldn't buy them. Just because someone has plenty of money I dont see it as a reason to pay over the odds for anything.

for practical reasons, my answer would be very obvious... i buy the cheaper ones be it fake or branded (happy to buy the branded at cheaper one, lol). actually, brands do not matter to me. as long as i am comfortable with it and as long as i am happy with the price, then i go for it. after all, it is always a matter of how u carry them!
