Get Instant Access to Genuine Certified Wholesale Suppliers of Authentic Designer Merchandise—Handbags, Clothing, Shoes, Jewelry, Watches, Accessories & more—from Top Designer Brands at 50-85% Off Retail
Looking for wholesale suppliers of authentic designer handbags and other merchandise for your business, a business you'd like to start OR just for yourself?
Spent hours searching online for suppliers with little to no luck?
Found suppliers but not sure you can trust them—are they legitimate? Is their merchandise really authentic?
Purchased 'wholesale lists' that turned out to be junk?
Been burned by scam artists who sold you fake merchandise or took off with your money?
If so, I understand your frustration and I can help you. My name is Viktor. A little over a decade ago, I was trying to start a business selling designer handbags after reading a success story about a person who was making a lot of money selling this merchandise.
But when I tried to find a wholesale supplier, it felt impossible. I'd spend countless hours searching online and hardly get anywhere.
And the frustrating thing was I knew these suppliers existed: I saw people selling authentic designer handbags on eBay and other websites, but I couldn't figure out where they were getting them from. No one wanted to talk.
When I finally found a supplier I thought I could trust—a company based in Italy, no less—I purchased $1,000 worth of Prada handbags from them, and they turned out to be fake. It was devastating.
But it made me even more determined to find a legitimate supplier, which I eventually did—after a lot of research—a few months later. It was at that time, 11 years ago now, that I began successfully selling this merchandise as a business.
Once I got my foot in the door, I learned a lot about the business. I made connections with people in the industry and eventually discovered dozens of suppliers of not only designer handbags, but also designer clothing, shoes, accessories, etc.
Finding these suppliers was not easy. Most of them aren't listed in the search engines and can't easily be found online. You really have to know someone "in the business" to get access to these suppliers.
When it comes to buying authentic designer merchandise at wholesale:
There are more SCAMS than REAL suppliers
Suppliers passing off extremely high-quality knockoffs from China as "authentic".
Suppliers that are con artists who simply take your money and run.
Worthless 'wholesale lists' sold by people who know nothing about the business.
DON'T BE FOOLED!
9 out of 10 wholesale suppliers claiming to sell "authentic" designer merchandise are selling FAKES.
#1 Scam: Suppliers Selling Fake Designer Goods as "Authentic"
Most wholesale suppliers selling "so-called" authentic designer handbags, designer clothing, etc. are selling fakes. They're selling what's called '7 Star Replicas' or 'Mirror Image' Replicas. These aren't just any replicas. They're top-of-the-line knockoffs made in China that come complete with authenticity cards, dust covers, and even serial numbers! Designer handbags that look so much like the real thing, most people can't tell the difference.
And get this: I've taken some of these replicas to a major department store here in the United States and been told by their sales person that they were real! That's how good they are. Granted, they didn't fool every sales person.
7 Star Replicas are a HUGE business in China; they sell them all over the world. Unfortunately, many suppliers pass this merchandise off as authentic to unsuspecting people.
I even personally know of good-intentioned people that have bought and sold this merchandise—some for months—without ever knowing that it was fake. The problem is: this merchandise is illegal. Even if you tell your customers it's fake, it's still illegal. It's trademark infringement. Stay away from it.
#2 Scam: Con Artists
The demand for designer goods is high and the supply is relatively low. Because of this fact, this industry is rampant with con artists: people that will show you price lists, pictures of inventory and even have full-fledged websites that look professional, yet when you pay them for goods, they simply take your money and run.
Some Designer Brands are Almost Impossible to Get Wholesale
Louis Vuitton is one of those brands. If you come across a wholesale supplier that claims to have authentic Louis Vuitton, I can pretty much guarantee you it's fake. It's been said that Louis Vuitton would rather burn their bags before they let them get wholesaled outside their retail stores.
The only place Louis Vuitton wholesales their merchandise is to their boutiques. They don't have distributors or other suppliers, whatsoever. In fact, most designers don't—the merchandise goes straight from the factories to their boutiques and authorized dealers. Say a particular Louis Vuitton item doesn't sell, they would rather destroy it than risk seeing it on the shelves at an outlet store. They do this to protect their brand image—the prestige and exclusivity people associate with Louis Vuitton. If LV were available on the off-price market, they believe their brand image would be diminished. Having said this, however, there is the RARE occasion that a supplier gets a hold of authentic Louis Vuitton, but it's almost unheard of. You have to be VERY well connected in this business.
Rest assured, most all other designer brands aren't this tough to get wholesale.
How You Can Tell if a Supplier of Designer Goods is Legitimate
Here are 6 things that legitimate suppliers of authentic designer handbags & other merchandise typically have in common. These suppliers:
Offer Merchandise that can be Autheticated by the Designer which means that if you mail the merchandise to the designer to have it authenticated (the ONLY true way to know), they will verify that it's authentic. It also means that the designer will honor any repairs, warranty issues, etc. that may arise because the product is genuine.
Offer Wholesale Pricing so you can make a profit which, on average, is anywhere from 50-80% off retail for past-season merchandise and 20-40% off retail for current season merchandise.
Offer Past-Season Merchandise - More often than not, legitimate suppliers sell past-season merchandise (similar to the stuff you'd find in a designer outlet store). Don't despair, this stuff sells like hotcakes—just look at big name sites like BlueFly.com that sell this merchandise all day long. Anything 'designer' is in demand. That being said, there are legitimate wholesale suppliers that sell current season designer merchandise (the stuff that's being sold in the boutiques right now) but they are the exception.
Accept Credit Cards or PayPal - Genuine suppliers accept payment methods that are traceable and reversible, the most common being credit cards and PayPal. With these forms of payment you are protected should anything go wrong. Be very leery of suppliers that only accept wire transfers or money orders, because once you send them your money, it's almost impossible to get it back (unless they willingly refund you, of course). I caution people to only use wire transfers with suppliers with whom they have an established relationship.
Have Limited Inventory and Styles that Change from Season-to-Season - Designer merchandise has a very high demand and limited quantities are intentionally produced, which makes the wholesale market small. It's always a red flag when you see a supplier that has the same styles season-after-season and seemingly endless quantities of merchandise, especially designer handbags. Legitimate suppliers will have new styles every season (with the exception of signature pieces) and limited amounts of inventory.
Provide their Contact Information Upfront - Legitimate suppliers are always upfront with their contact information. A supplier's name, address (which should NOT be a PO BOX or a UPS address), telephone number, and e-mail should not be a secret or hidden in any way. It's a huge red flag if you have to do any digging to find out where a supplier is located, how to get into contact with them, etc—seem obvious, but I can't tell you how many people have done business with suppliers where this has been the case.
If a company claims to be a legitimate wholesaler of designer merchandise and cannot meet the above guidelines, it is usually in your best interest to look the other way.
Where Can You Find Legitimate Wholesale Suppliers of Authentic Designer Handbags, Clothing, Shoes, & More?
Well, you can either invest a lot of time and money into doing the research yourself like I did or you can use my online Wholesale Designer Directory and hit the ground running by benefiting from my research—research that I learned the hard way, through trial and error and connections made from years of experience in the designer apparel business.
The directory I have complied contains wholesale suppliers of authentic designer handbags, clothing, shoes, sunglasses, jewelry, perfume, cosmetics, accessories, and more.Every single company in my Wholesale Designer Directory has been thoroughly screened and certified as a genuine wholesale supplier of authentic designer merchandise.
These are the exact same sources that successful eBay® sellers, Amazon® sellers, and online store owners use.
What Makes My Directory Different?
Unlike most people offering wholesale lists related to designer merchandise, I have over a decade's experience in this business. I walk the walk. I started out in 2003 with no experience and eventually built up a successful business selling designer merchandise. I learned about the industry the hard way, through trial and error. I've made many mistakes. I've been scammed by suppliers that have sold me merchandise that I though was authentic. I've lost a lot money. I've made a lot of money. You name it.
I've developed contacts in this industry that only come from years of experience. With this experience, I offer more than just the supplier listings themselves—which no doubt are valuable—I provide insider knowledge into how this business works: how to work with suppliers, things to look out for, things to avoid, etc. I provide this information as a supplement to the directory, and I believe this information is just as important as the directory itself.
Every supplier listed in my directory has been screened and is certified to be a genuine supplier of authentic designer merchandise. I take this very seriously. If a supplier is listed in my directory, they are legitimate. Once approved into the directory, I periodically review the suppliers to ensure they are still on the up and up.
The directory is online. It's in a password-protected members' only site. An online directory ensures that I'm always able to keep it up-to-date (directories that are printed on paper can be outdated in an instant). When I come across new suppliers, I place an announcement on the main page of the directory. If there's an issue with a supplier, it's handled right away and all members are notified. You won't find this kind of relevancy with other wholesale lists.
You can use my directory to start your own business selling one of the hottest products around: Designer Handbags!
"...Words can't express how thankful I am to you and to your beautiful directory. It has literally opened a window of endless possibilities for ordinary people like myself. I now feel so much more confident about going into business knowing that I have credible, reliable and trustworthy sources. By the way all of the suppliers have been truly fantastic to work with!

Yes, my directory contains suppliers of authentic designer clothing, shoes, watches, perfume, jewelry, sunglasses, accessories, and cosmetics.

The wholesale suppliers offer both current season and past season merchandise, but the majority is past season.
Where are these wholesalers located and where do they ship to?
Most of the wholesalers in my directory are located in the US, and they import their merchandise directly from Italy.

Therefore, no matter where you live, you can still use the directory.
Can I use the directory to purchase wholesale handbags for just myself, not necessarily to sell?
Yes, but the majority of the suppliers have 5 to 10 items minimums. I only have a few suppliers that do not require minimum orders.

My Knowledge & Years of Experience Buying Designer Merchandise Wholesale is Yours Risk-Free
Here's the best news of all: you made it here just in time to take advantage of an unprecedented offer.
This offer is a part of a marketing test that's got my accountant up in arms; he thinks that my normal risk-free price of $59.95 is too low. However, because the Internet has reduced many of my costs, I'm doing a marketing test and passing my savings on to our Internet customers until March 15th, 2014. Depending on how it affects sales, I may or may not continue this special discount offer after this date.
Therefore, if you order the Wholesale Designer Directory online by midnight on March 15th, 2014, it's yours risk-free for an incredibly low price of only $39.95—which is nothing compared to how much $$$ you will be saving and earning with this knowledge. This is over 30% off the everyday price!
*THIS IS A ONE-TIME fee. You will never be re-billed for anything (like some other membership sites), and you will get free lifetime updates.
Free Bonus #1: Designer Handbag Wholesalers That Drop-Ship!
Drop shipping is a great way to start a business. If you don't know what drop shipping is, it simply means that you do not have to stock any inventory. The wholesaler stocks all of the inventory for you and ship the items, one piece at a time, directly to your customers. This option works very well for people who want to sell designer handbags without investing in the merchandise before it is actually sold. I, personally, did this with my company's online store when I was just starting out. The only downside to drop shipping is the fact that the pricing won't be quite as good as if you were to buy in bulk. However, depending on how you sell these goods, you should still be able to make a decent profit. If you order my directory today, I will include—completely FREE of charge—the contact information of legitimate designer handbag wholesalers that drop-ship.
Free Bonus # 2: Designer Handbag Suppliers in Italy and Europe!
Ever wonder where eBay PowerSellers and companies who import their merchandise get it from? Well, the answer is right at the source: Italy. If you've ever tried to get the contact information for these wholesalers, then you know how unbelievably hard it is to do. No one in the business wants to give away this information. However, I am going to give you the contact information of the few, highly-sought-after Italian designer handbag suppliers. This bonus alone is well worth the cost of the directory...and it's yours free, if you order now.
