EBAY, CFDA FIGHT COUNTERFEITS WITH STYLE: Fashion-minded techies and business-minded designers came together Monday night to fete eBay’s collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to fight the proliferation of counterfeit goods.
Held at the Beach, the Dream Downtown’s New York rooftop poolside oasis, the CFDA and the online marketplace showed off a collection of 50 newly created canvas bags, sporting the saying “You Can’t Fake Fashion.”
Each customized by CFDA designers, including CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Billy Reid, Tory Burch, Phillip Lim, Marchesa, Rodarte and The Row, the bags, which went on sale on eBay Monday, reportedly sold out within three hours.
Retailing for $150, the proceeds will benefit the CFDA Foundation, according to its executive director Steven Kolb, who mingled poolside with friends.
Sipping peach sangria and cool lemon-flavored drinks infused with vodka and sprigs of rosemary, designers including Jason Wu, Rebecca Minkoff, Elie Tahari and Monica Botkier marveled at their colleagues’ creations, which were on display behind Plexiglas cases.
For those still hoping to get their hands on a canvas tote, buyers can still snap up the uncustomized version of the bag for $35.
