Looking for suppliers of authentic wholesale designer handbags, clothing, shoes, etc. for your business or a business you’d like to start?
If this sounds familiar, I can help you. My name is Viktor. Back in 2002, I tired to start a business selling designer handbags, inspired by a success story. But finding a reliable supplier was tough. I spent countless hours researching online and hardly got anywhere—running into either questionable suppliers, replica dealers or just plain dead ends.
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.
Eventually, when I found a supplier of wholesale designer handbags whom I thought I could trust—a company based in Italy, no less—I purchased a few thousand dollars worth of Prada handbags from them, and they turned out to be fake. I was devastated.
Determined, I pressed on and a few months later, I had my break: an online seller of designer handbags gave me their supplier’s information—I could hardly believe it. Armed with this knowledge, I was able to successfully start a business selling designer handbags.
Since then, I have learned A LOT about this business. I’ve made connections with people in the industry and discovered dozens more suppliers of not only wholesale designer handbags, but also designer clothing, shoes, accessories, etc.
Now, I want to share this knowledge with you so you can find genuine designer products at wholesale prices and steer clear of scams, con artists and and fake goods.
Finding Legitimate Suppliers of Designer Goods is Not Easy
Many Suppliers Selling “Authentic” Goods are Selling Fakes
They’re selling what’s called ‘7 Star’ replicas or ‘Mirror Image’ replicas. And these aren’t just any replicas. They’re top-of-the-line knockoffs made in China which come complete with authenticity cards, dust covers, and even serial numbers. They look so much like the real thing, many 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 authentic! That’s how good they are. Granted, they didn’t fool every sales person.
So you have to be very careful when dealing with suppliers of designer goods, especially those offering wholesale designer handbags. If you don’t know this business very well, it’s easy to be duped. I know people with good intentions that have bought and sold replicas—thinking they were selling the real thing—for months without ever knowing. The problem: this merchandise is illegal (even if you tell your customers it’s fake, it’s still illegal). It’s ‘trademark infringement’, punishable by law.
Authentic merchandise is much harder to come by and isn’t nearly as readily available wholesale.
Con Artists Are Rampant in this Industry
The demand for wholesale designer handbags and other designer goods is high and the supply is relatively low, if we’re talking authentic product. Because of this fact, this industry is rife with con artists.
In fact, most of the offers you see online advertising authentic designer goods on sites like Dhgate.com are for fake merchandise or non-existent goods.
The con artists behind these operations can be very convincing, with elaborate websites, price lists with pictures of inventory (stolen from reputable sellers), and phone numbers. Yet, when you pay them for merchandise—typically with a wire transfer or money order—they disappear.
Many people get scammed buying designer goods wholesale. If you don’t know this industry well, it’s very easy to get taken. I can’t stress this enough.
Some Designer Brands are Impossible to Get Wholesale
A few designer brands are so exclusive with the distribution of their goods, it is not possible to find them wholesale…anywhere—in new condition, that is.
Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Hermes are some of these brands. Louis Vuitton, for example, only wholesales their merchandise to their boutiques, which are owned by the brand. They do not wholesale to anyone else—Nordstrom, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, you name it. Because of this, it is not possible to get LV wholesale. Period.
In fact, if you come across a supplier selling brand new Louis Vuitton wholesale, I can guarantee you it’s fake.
There are a few other designer brands which operate this way, but not to worry, it’s not the norm. Most designers brands can be found at wholesale in new condition, if you know where to look.
NOTE: The good news is, if you’re in the market for pre-owned goods, you can find almost any brand at wholesale, including Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Hermes!
