    Default Help with school about fake handbags!

    Hey all! I am in the process of writing my graduation thesis paper for school and I chose the topic of counterfeit handbags!! I figured you ladies would be able to help me out (hopefully) So I have a questionnaire that I would reallllly appreciate if you guys could fill out! I am going to be getting the handbag lovers opinion, the everyday consumers opinion, and I am going to contact some designer companies to see what they are doing to prevent and inform consumers about counterfeit handbags! My instructor was very excited to learn about TBF too

    My topic / question is ... Is the production of counterfeit handbags affecting the sales of designer handbags?

    If you don't feel comfortable answering any of them just put pass please!

    I think I would be a little more paranoid about how people perceive me. Life they would know and are judging me. Lol.

    Los Angeles

    6. What is your current profession?

    college student

    7. Have you ever purchased a counterfeit handbag?

    no

    8. Why or why not?

    I can't stand them because they're terrible quality and often shoddy replicas, but most of all I think it's the worst thing someone could do concerning fashion. It's stealing someone else's successful idea and design in order to make your own profit, AND it's lying to people by trying to pass it off as yours.

    9. Do you think that the sale of counterfeit handbags is affecting the sales of designer handbags?

    I'm not too sure, but I'd say yes. If a customer really believes that a counterfeit bag is real, then they certainly won't buy a real bag due to the price. Many people also see it as "Well, if I can get a very similar or almost identical bag for 80% less or so, why not?"

    10. Approximately how many people do you see with counterfeit handbags a day while shopping at the mall?

    11-15

    11. Approximately how many people do you see with counterfeit handbags on a regular day?

    1-5

    12. Approximately how many people do you see with designer handbags a day while shopping at the mall?

    11-15

    13. Approximately how many people do you see with designer handbags on a regular day?

    6-10

    14. Would you rather have 20 counterfeit handbags or 2 designer handbags?

    I'd rather have 2 designer handbags.

    15. Please explain.

    It's quality over quantity for me. If I can get two amazing bags that I would use every day for years at a much higher price, then that's worth it to me. A million "cheap" bags wouldn't make me happy or satisfied; I want a bag that will hold up 10 years later and will look great, no matter how often I carry it.

    16. Can you tell the difference between a counterfeit handbag and an authentic handbag?

    Yep.

    17. Are you aware of the law against counterfeit handbags, do you think it should be passed?

    Obviously the nightly news isn't too concerned with counterfeit bags, so I haven't heard anything new; making knockoffs is illegal, and it should become more strict. It's a horrible practice and people need to stop.

    18. Are you brand loyal when it comes to handbags?

    Definitely.

    19. Would you rather have a counterfeit handbag based on the price difference?

    Noooo, never.

    20. Have you ever hosted or been to a purse party?

    Nope.

    21. How much money do you spend on average on a handbag?

    I generally don't buy my handbags myself; I usually split the cost with my boyfriend or ask for them as birthday/Christmas gifts, so I usually only spend $100 - $300 or so.

    22. Do you care about how others perceive you based on your handbag choices?

    Somewhat. I generally want people who see me with my bags to know that I carry authentic bags and not counterfeits.

    23. How do you feel personally when you carry a counterfeit handbag vs. and authentic handbag?

    I've never bought a counterfeit, but when I carry a designer bag I feel amazing. I know that I bought a great item and look great carrying it.

    24. When you carry a counterfeit handbag do you feel conscious of how people perceive you?

    Wouldn't know.

    25. Will you admit to others that your handbag is counterfeit (if applicable)?

    14. Would you rather have 20 counterfeit handbags or 2 designer handbags?
    2 designer bags

    15. Please explain.
    I do not want to fund organized crime or terrorism.
    I also heard that many of the factories that make the fakes employ child laborists.
    PLUS they are UGLY. People say they cannot see the difference -- yeah right !!

    16. Can you tell the difference between a counterfeit handbag and an authentic handbag? on many types (thanks to TBF)

    17. Are you aware of the law against counterfeit handbags, do you think it should be passed? Oh yeah ---

    18. Are you brand loyal when it comes to handbags?
    yes -- very soo -- I own several Coach , Dooneys , and a small collection of Louis Vuittons , I also own two Kenneth Cole bags which I adore . Ohhh and I use a Prada backback type purse when I am at work.

    19. Would you rather have a counterfeit handbag based on the price difference?
    NOOOOOOOOOOOO

    20. Have you ever hosted or been to a purse party?
    THEY would have to pay me ---

    21. How much money do you spend on average on a handbag?
    $100 to $300

    22. Do you care about how others perceive you based on your handbag choices?

    Okay --- I am considered snobby to some people . I have been told that I could be rich just selling my handbags. I have been poo-poo'd by co-workers /family etc. because I won't go to a purse party. Other people may think that I am not up to snuff because I don't own higher end designer bags. As I said before my collection is heavily weighted toward Coach and Dooneys. I like all my bags :)

    23. How do you feel personally when you carry a counterfeit handbag vs. and authentic handbag? I haven't carried a fake since I was 17. After I was confronted about my fake Coach I bought some mid market priced purses by Liz Claiborne . I then saved up for a real Coach and felt like I was in heaven. I still own my first "vintage" Coach in black. She was (well still is ) a beauty :)

    24. When you carry a counterfeit handbag do you feel conscious of how people perceive you? I haven't carrried one since I was 17.

    25. Will you admit to others that your handbag is counterfeit (if applicable)?
    I would never get a fake -- I would rather buy something stylish from Target instead if I could not really afford it !! Fakes to me are just TACKY !!

    Not to my knowledge

    8. Why or why not?
    I'd rather pay the money to get the real thing so that I know I'm getting something of quality

    9. Do you think that the sale of counterfeit handbags is affecting the sales of designer handbags?
    Honestly, no. People who can't afford the real thing are going to buy a replica if they want to. People who can afford the real thing aren't going to buy a replica because they can get the original.

    10. Approximately how many people do you see with counterfeit handbags a day while shopping at the mall?
    In my area, probably 1-5

    11. Approximately how many people do you see with counterfeit handbags on a regular day?
    1-5

    12. Approximately how many people do you see with designer handbags a day while shopping at the mall?
    11-15

    13. Approximately how many people do you see with designer handbags on a regular day?
    1-5, since I'm inside at work all day

    14. Would you rather have 20 counterfeit handbags or 2 designer handbags?
    2 designer

    15. Please explain.
    A bunch of replicas aren't worth anything.

    16. Can you tell the difference between a counterfeit handbag and an authentic handbag?
    Of course

    17. Are you aware of the law against counterfeit handbags, do you think it should be passed?
    I honestly don't really care. People are going to do what they want regardless if it's legal or not.

    18. Are you brand loyal when it comes to handbags?
    I have specific brands that I love and don't tend to venture outside of those very often.

    19. Would you rather have a counterfeit handbag based on the price difference?
    Nope. I'd rather save up to get the real thing :)

    20. Have you ever hosted or been to a purse party?
    No

    21. How much money do you spend on average on a handbag?
    Average... hmmm. Probably a normal amount for me would be about $800... even though I have bags that are more and less than that.

    22. Do you care about how others perceive you based on your handbag choices?
    When I first started buying expensive bags, I did. I've come to realize that it doesn't matter what I have. I don't care what people think of me, and buy things because I like them, not because of the image I'm conveying.

    23. How do you feel personally when you carry a counterfeit handbag vs. and authentic handbag?
    Not having carried a fake, I'll have to assume that it feels embarrassing. People know when you have a fake.

    24. When you carry a counterfeit handbag do you feel conscious of how people perceive you?
    Same as above.

    25. Will you admit to others that your handbag is counterfeit (if applicable)?
    If I had a fake, I definitely wouldn't tell people. But, haven't had to do that.
