  • Cosette, a luxury designer outlet in Sydney's CBD, has recently come under fire for allegedly selling fake designer handbags. While the store claims to sell authentic and discounted couture, some customers have complained that the bags they purchased were actually rip-offs. One Melbourne mother, Erin, purchased a Gucci handbag from Cosette's website after giving birth to her first child. At first, she believed she had scored a great deal, comparing the prices on Cosette's website to the official Gucci site. However, upon receiving the bag, she noticed discrepancies, such as a dust bag that did not indicate it was made in Italy. Despite her concerns, Erin convinced herself that the bag was genuine after discussing it with friends. This incident exposes a growing issue in the luxury market, where customers are eager to find discounted designer goods but run the risk of unknowingly purchasing counterfeit items. Cosette's authenticity guarantees on their website raise doubts about the true origins of their products, leaving customers feeling deceived and disgusted. It is clear that more needs to be done to protect consumers from falling victim to fraudulent luxury goods sellers like Cosette.
  • Subtitles section
  • It's the luxury designer outlet accused of selling fakes.
  • Cosette sells designer handbags at discount prices.
  • But some customers claim they were sold rip-offs.
  • Hey ladies, we just wanted to know are you selling fake handbags?
  • No, no, we know them, no.
  • I know that Gucci wouldn't make such a crappy product basically.
  • It's terrible, like honestly I feel like it's absolutely disgusting.
  • It smells like plastic.
  • That's right, it's becoming a very, very big issue.
  • If you're looking to bag a designer must-have, the privilege comes with a hefty price tag.
  • But there are ways to get discounted luxury goods.
  • Cosette, here in Sydney's CBD, claims to sell authentic cut-price couture.
  • But some devastated customers believe the real bags they bought here are actually fakes.
  • Melbourne mum Erin wanted to treat herself after giving birth to her first child.
  • For being strong and making it through.
  • Erin had never bought a real designer handbag before.
  • But when she found Cosette's website, the prices seemed like a bargain.
  • They were selling discounted luxury items, which I know isn't a common thing.
  • She decided to get a Gucci handbag.
  • I had gone back to the Gucci website and put both websites side by side to compare, to make sure that, you know, they were legitimate items.
  • Cosette's website has authenticity guaranteed on the front page.
  • Erin paid $1,541 and was stoked to finally flaunt a real designer piece.
  • I was really looking forward to showing it off.
  • But when her bag arrived, she had concerns.
  • I looked at the dust bag.
  • I think that was probably the main giveaway.
  • It didn't say that it was made in Italy, which I know that a lot of them do.
  • But after chatting to friends, Erin convinced herself it was real.
  • I had my bag for like two and a half years and I was kind of like really proud of the fact that I owned a real bag.
  • But a few months ago, that bubble burst when her friend Milana paid $1,767 for a Prada bag from Cosette.
  • When I did receive this bag, it was very evident to me, based on my personal opinion, that it was not the real deal.
  • Milana's a fashion stylist and owns several luxury pieces.
  • She's bought a designer bag from Cosette before and had no issues, but says this time she felt something wasn't right.
  • There was an odour that was very odd.
  • It was like a factory smell.
  • And then also on the bag, the main logo on the outside was crooked.
  • Milana didn't bother getting the bag re-authenticated to find out whether her suspicions were correct.
  • She just wanted a refund, which she received.
  • It just really makes me feel sick for other people.
  • Milana posted on social media, warning others, leading Erin to question the authenticity of her Gucci.
  • I went to a third-party company who do authentications.
  • So I eagerly awaited and it came back that it wasn't authentic, that it was a counterfeit handbag.
  • So needless to say, I was devastated.
  • Erin contacted Cosette and sent the bag back.
  • So they came back to me just over a week later with their own certificate of authenticity and they said that it's 100% authentic.
  • Despite that, Cosette offered Erin a full refund, which she accepted.
  • Adelaide Mum Louise paid $2,415 for a YSL bag from Cosette.
  • Which arrived with a certificate of authenticity from reputable authenticators.
  • I actually noticed that the photos on the certificate sort of looked a bit different than my actual bag.
  • So I just thought, you know what, I'm going to get myself my own certificate.
  • A few hours later, Louise received this response from the authenticators.
  • The bag is fake.
  • Louise, like the others, received a full refund.
  • But wants people to be aware of what happened to her.
  • When we confronted Cosette's staff, they maintained everything is above board.
  • We just want to know what's real and what's fake in here.
  • Everything is real.
  • I mean, I've had like complaints before and we take the bags and we do like checks on them and they always come back fine from what we know of.
  • I've also had people come in saying that they think the bags are fake because they've bought a, say, YSL and taken it to the YSL store and the YSL girls are like, oh, you bought it from Cosette.
  • Like, it's fake.
  • Like, I'll show you the bag we have in here and why it's different.
  • In a statement, Cosette denied selling fakes.
  • All goods sold by Cosette are genuine.
  • Cosette conducts quality control and authenticates goods independently by third parties.
  • Any claims that we sell fake bags or that these refunds imply that we have admitted that we sell fake bags are false.
  • National fashion editor for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Melissa Singer, was tipped off about the allegations and after a month-long investigation broke the story.
  • If these allegations are true, the obvious benefit to Cosette is that they are selling goods at a heavily inflated margin.
  • They're selling bags that maybe only cost them a fraction of the price that they sell it for.
  • A current affair is not suggesting that Cosette deliberately sold fakes to customers.
  • Authenticator Jane Thompson from Blue Spinach says counterfeit products are becoming increasingly hard to detect.
  • How good are these fakes getting?
  • Really good.
  • Jane examined a real and a fake Bottega Veneta Jodi bag, neither from Cosette, to show us the difference.
  • So this one is the fake bag.
  • It's obvious because the leather is very, very different.
  • I mean, it's quite cheap and has a kind of plasticky feel to it.
  • Jane also says some fake bags smell different.
  • It smells like plastic.
  • That's right, that's right.
  • Small details like the width of a zip can be things to look out for.
  • Jane's been an authenticator for 27 years and says she feels for customers duped into buying expensive fakes.
  • You feel cheated, you feel dumb.
  • Jane, what's wrong with buying a fake?
  • Oh, where would you like me to start?
  • Everything.
  • I kind of feel like maybe I'll take my family on a holiday instead of investing that much money in a bag.
