If you want to get a sample at how good they are in China at copying goods, heed to the famous Silk Market.
Silk Street also known as Silk Market or Silk Street Market, is a shopping center in Chaoyang District Bejing notorious among international tourists for their wide selection of counterfeit designer brand apparel.
Buses also ply the area.
If there is one thing, the place is also notorious for their sale clerks who are really pushy. They even ask you what country you are from and they start talking to you in your language. I was surprised the clerk at the store we checked knows basic Tagalog expressions like maganda, gwapo, mahal, mura. For a country that can hardly speak English to talk Pinoy is impressive.
Despite the efforts, counterfeits were still found inside the shopping center. As a result, five global brand-name giants, which included Prada, Chanel, Louis Vuitton , Gucci and Burberry were granted compensation of 20,000 yuan (US$2500) each from the landlord and five of its stall holders on April 14, 2006. On June 7, 2006, a deal was signed with European luxury name brands promising to evict tenants found violating trademark rights. The Intellectual Property Rights Protection Fund of 30 million yuan (US$3.8m) collected from its tenants was established by Silk Street in a collective effort to curb infringements of trademark rights. On August 30, 2006, 30 vendors received 10 million yuan (US$1.3m) in rent refunds from that fund as a reward for respecting IPR protection laws. An estimated 80 per cent of vendors at Silk Street have acquired trademark authorization as of August 2006. source
It was our 5th day on the road and I was running out of something to wear so
I ended up buying a few items including two Superdy shirts. Each costing 50 RMB that's around 359 pesos a piece. Back in Manila, original Superdy shirt costs around 1,800 pesos. Very big difference in price but not in quality. Happiness!
