Sure fake bags are cheap, but did you know that buying them seriously hurts the fashion industry? On Monday, eBay is launching a campaign to raise awareness against counterfeit goods and stolen designs in collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Called “You Can’t Fake Fashion,” the campaign goes hand in hand with the sale of canvas tote bags bearing the slogan and customized by CFDA designers like (clockwise from top left) DKNY, Tory Burch, Milly and Phillip Lim. If you don’t want to shell out $150 for a customized tote — but feel passionate toward the cause — grab a standard “You Can’t Fake Fashion” bag for just $35. The sale begins Monday at 11 a.m. ET at the eBay Fashion Vault; all proceeds will benefit the CFDA Foundation. Tell us: Will you support designers by taking a stand against fake fashion? –Kim Peiffer
