Fake Luxury Fashion and DIY Copies

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

What does it mean for fashion to be "fake"? What constitutes authentic, genuine, or original fashion? What are the ethics and values behind copying-- from mocking to paying homage -- mass produced items? Should the same rules apply to individual DIY products? We explore these question through anecdotes about connoisseurs of the fake, fancy retail brands, the Etsy world, and the BurdaStyle community
