If they are 'inspired by' the designer then it's legal, horrible I know. If they are trying to be Coach or Chanel and have fake tags and authenticity cards and everything, then that is counterfeit and therefore illegal.

:roflmfao::roflmfao: @ the party. Did you actually write all the info from the ad? The purse party itself is not legal but also, adding all this info in a thread like this would get you in some trouble in the forum. Just tought I'd let you know, dont get mad ok.

oops, I did not mean to post something I was not supposed to. I copied the ad exactly like it is shown in the paper. I think you can even view it online. If I was not supposed to add something please let me know. I am not advertising for this person. Not that anyone here would be buying fakes anyway.

Yeah, it isn't legal but some people have no idea that there are laws against these types of things. I would just leave the whole situation alone.. and maybe remove her phone number.

^Actually NO, as long as the merchandise is not counterfeit or replicas and is "DESIGNER INSPIRED" without the use of the designer's logo then yes, it's legal. Knock-off's normally, when read by any other party means you are getting an item "almost like the real thing" with out the price tag... that includes the logo and design.

Ahh, wikipedia to the rescue:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knock_Off
states...
Counterfeit consumer goods, commonly called Knock Offs, are counterfeit or imitation products offered for sale.

^If the ad was in a paper (and also available on line) then it's public information that more than just the OP could have found with a simple internet search. If anything I'd probably have left out the email address, and made sure to call up Coach if I called the number and found out replica Coach items would be sold at said party.

Ther is a whole bag store in my area where they advertise on the radio to have " a large selection of lous vuitton, coach, dooney and bourke, vera bradley, and many other high end designer brands for low prices". Its horrible super fake knock offs. I have reported them a few times...still there though! ugh.

My friend went to one of these parties and came back with a fake Dolce and a fake Coach! They were definitely knock offs and not very good replicas.
