If you are partial to designer clothing, either because you like to be able to wear named brands or because you feel the quality is better and you get what you pay for, you need to think carefully before you make your purchase. There are a number of places to get designer clothing and the many people only buy direct from designer shops in store or online. But if you are after a bargain then you may look elsewhere. Some shops such as TK Maxx specialise in designer brands for less than the recommended retail price. These items are all genuine and if you have any issues you can return the item to store for a refund or exchange. Other places you may be pick up a bargain are in charity shops. Many charity shops have a section for designer or top brand items. These are almost always used but often still have plenty of life left in them.
Bidding sites such as Ebay is flooded with designer goods but unfortunately a lot of these items are not genuine. You may end up spending over the odds for a handbag or pair of shoes, thinking that it is designer when in fact it isn’t. Before buying any designer goods second hand, ask to see either a receipt or if it is jewellery such as a watch, then there is probably a certificate of authentication.
