I just don't understand...

For some odd reason it is extremely fashionable to proclaim (as loudly as possible) the name of the designer who created your clothing and/or accessories. I have really never quite understood this. Really, if they're such a good designer, shouldn't the design speak for itself? Would the bag you're carrying be nearly so chic without someone else's initials printed all over it? It seems that many designers are not designing clothes anymore -- they are more interested in designing vehicles for their logo. And for some reason, fashionistas everywhere are eating it up.

Even more perplexing to me is this site. I understand that in a society where labels are so desirable as to be out of the price range of the average girl there will be knock offs. Makes sense really -- just simple supply and demand. But I would think that if you are so concerned with the name of the designer that you would wear it printed all over your hand bag, you would not want people to know that the bag didn't really come from that designer. I don't see why anyone would buy a bag with some designer's name written all over it, only then to have the word "FAKE" printed in huge letters over said name. Let's not even mention how utterly repulsive the finished item looks. Wouldn't the $60 be better spent on a bag that actually looks presentable, even without a designer name? Can someone please help me understand???
