hi, i just thought i'll share my experience. a few days ago, i was in winners and as i was browsing around i overheard the conversation of a lady wearing a large fake prada tote (with big prada writing on it) and a sales assistant. the sales assistant praised her bag saying: "oh, what a lovely bag. it's really nice." and the lady replied loudly: "oh, it's not real though. my friend bought it for me from china. i'd never buy the real thing. i don't see the point of wasting so much on it. hahaha" the sales assistant just laughed too and agreed. i was quite amazed to hear this. well, i never thought i'd hear such words. i might be wrong, but to me it sounds like she was pretty proud to use counterfeit items.
