Many fashion designers would love to get rid of the counterfeit bags, which often replicate a brand design but cost a fraction of the price. Even though they cannot directly stop the selling of these designer bags, they can at least spread awareness, according to the Post-Dispatch.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America recently developed a fundraiser in hopes of spreading awareness about these knock-offs. Big-name designers took part in creating bags and totes that are one-of-a-kind, each of which has the message "You Can't Fake Fashion" plastered on them, according to the news source.

There were 50 designers who designed these bags, which were sold for $150. Some of the well-known designers that participated in this contest included Diane von Furstenberg, Badgley Mischka, Anna Sui, Peter Som, Jason Wu, The Row, Tommy Hilfiger and Rodarte, the media outlet reports.

According to The Times-Picayune, the designer bags were sold out within hours, while the standard bags are sold for $35 and are still available.
