This season’s must-have bag has arrived! eBay & CFDA’s 2013 “You Can’t Fake Fashion” third tote collection went on sale at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT yesterday, featuring one-of-a-kind bags by Ralph Lauren, Diane von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung, Derek Lam, Rachel Roy, Tory Burch, and many more of your favorite designers. This was a huge project, as eBay and the CFDA enlisted 90 American designers to participate. Each customized tote is unique and one-of-a-kind.
The embellished totes are available at auction and started at $100. However, you can always snag a standard tote style for a fixed ‘Buy It Now’ price of $50. The auction concludes at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET on March 25. This is the first time eBay has auctioned the designer bags in hopes they will be able to raise even more money for the CFDA Foundation to fight counterfeits and support authentic design. All proceeds from the collection auction and sale benefit the Foundation in their crusade. This is an endeavor we here at Second City Style strongly support because we think fake bags are inexcusably tacky and disgusting, not to mention illegal! So bid high and bid often!
