Betsy Bags was founded and created by me, Betsy HIlliard, to provide news and insights about fake designer handbags.
Growing up in the East Village of New York City, I often took trips to the many luxury shops on Fifth Avenue. It was here I discovered my love for fashion, which would lead me to attend LIM College in order to prepare myself for a career in the fashion industry. LIM College is a private college in NYC that is focused on the business of fashion. After graduating college I worked in the marketing department for a distributor for some of the world’s leading fashion retailers, including Prada and Michael Kors. Specifically, I promoted the sale of designer handbags in airport retail locations all around the world. Everything costs more in an airport and high-end designer handbags are a great fit.
Throughout my 15+ years of experience in the handbag industry, I constantly dealt with the threat knock-offs and fake designer bags. To learn more about fake handbags I frequented Canal Street in NYC’s Chinatown and it is here that I examined these “fakes”, looking at their quality, price point, and likeness to the real thing. Due to their significantly lower cost many people resort to buying Fake Handbags. I decided to start Betsy Bags in order to share my knowledge for people who love designer handbags but cannot afford them.
