How maddening is it that knock-off designs have become so standard — and with seemingly little to no repercussions? Very. But hold your horses. Put away your uzis. Drop those boxing gloves. Shelve your epic temper tantrums. No jail time or time-outs will be needed, just a little cash. The CFDA and eBay are coming to the rescue. They’ve teamed up with more than 75 of the best designers in the land, including CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, The Row, Fenton, Rebecca Minkoff, Chris Benz and Charlotte Ronson, to design YOU CAN’T FAKE FASHION tote bags. Available exclusively on eBay starting March 20 — customized totes will be $200 and standard totes $45. All proceeds from bag sales will help the CFDA fight against counterfeits and protect intellectual-property rights. So put away your frowns (and guns), pull out your credit cards and throw down a few peaceful bones to help an important cause.
