This was a while ago, so I can no longer report it, and before I knew about fake designer clothing. I never wore these items, but I know I can not list them as being that particular designer since they are fake. Do I just title the auction "white dress"? Since "replica" and "designer inspired" are not acceptable.

I've seen most people list fakes as purely what they are i.e a 'designer' white dress size x' would just be listed as 'white dress size x'.

I've seen bags being listed with a fairly plain name and looking further at the photos to see it was clearly a marc jacobs or chloe fake bag. I'm not sure what the rules are though =/

It's against the law (and ebay policy) to sell counterfeits.
Even if you state in your auction.

Replica's have the designer name forged in the clothing and/or handbags, etc.

Designer Inspired is ok as there is another name or no name on the labels.

Since it is still a piece of garment, I suppose if you remove the brand name tag on the clothing and do not include the brand name in the auction description, you can still sell it as a non-branded clothing. Of course you won't be getting the same money back. Donating it may be a better option if you don't want to do all the listing work. =)
