What’s Trending on the streets of LA!!?

Spring is approaching all over the country and we are all dying to pull out our shorts and t-shirts, but like most of the US, when we look outside all we see is wet, cold, slushy snow! As a former Minnesota girl, with our loooong winters, I remeber wanting to put on shorts in March because I was tired of looking at snow! I think one year I did and my mom looked at me like I was nuts, I took them off before I went to school (dress-code and all). Now I have traded snow for rain; clearly not learning my lesson. However, now when I feel the need for a little “warm up” I look to LA. This is what is currently trending on the streets of LA…

The Knockoff Economy

The counterfeit industry is growing increasingly fast. The industry is up $600 million and is expected to double by 2015.


Footwear is number one replicated followed by handbags and fashions. 60% of knockoffs are being imported from China.

Nowadays you have to be careful about what you are purchasing online, especially where people can sell their goods online,  because the price and pictures cannot always portray the true product. eBay says they stop counterfeit bya program that allows “brands or other intellectual property rights owners special tools to report listings,” but there are always loophole

s for sellers to get through.

Brands that are well established are forming creative ways to make it easy to identify that they are the real ones. For example, True Religion Apparel Inc. has a security device in each pair of jeans. Chanel tracks each bag by a specific identification number. “For consumers, the devices are only helpful if they take the product somewhere for verification, such as an official boutique.”
