Multi Million Pound Fake Bag Haul Seized

Almost £14 million worth of fake designer bags have been seized in a police raid in warehouses in Manila, the Philippines. Bags purporting to be by designers including Hermès, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo and Michael Kors were confiscated in the swoop.


The raiding team acted on a warrant of seizure issued by the Bureau of Customs, the senior investigating officer told The Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Fashion Law reports, and would soon subpoena the warehouse owners for a hearing at the bureau.



French luxury conglomerate LVMH which controls several of the labels allegedly counterfeited in this case, including Hermès and Louis Vuitton signed an agreement with online market place Ebay earlier this year to work together to curb the online sale of luxury fakes.
