The Devil Wears Frada (An analysis about piracy in the Philippines)

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Devil Wears FRADA The Philippines is a country full of pirated things: dvd's, shirts, shoes, bags, and many more. Many shopping malls are dedicated to selling these. Divisoria and Greenhills are two of the most infamous places where you can buy Frada, Luis Buitton, Lacost, etc. With the low Philippine economy, we cannot blame those people who tend to buy fake designer items. Are they really worth it? There are good reasons why it is better to buy authentic brands rather than cheap imitations. Let's start off with the most obvious reason: fake imitations will not last long. They are made of flimsy materials and, therefore, will easily break. ...read more.

But if you buy an original piece, you will feel that you are above everyone else. Having an original Rolex or Prada gives you the feeling of strength and confidence. Owning an original piece spares you the feeling of worry that people will judge your appearance by what you are wearing, because you can go straight to them and show your flawless authentic possession. Still, we cannot deny the fact that fake designers are a lot cheaper than that of authentic ones.

Conclusion

My point is that we can all look great without resorting to buying fake items. It is better to buy not-so-popular brands rather than having a Louis Vuitton wannabe. The capability of the poor in buying original items is not an excuse to buy an imitation. There are a number of affordable brands which they can very well manage to buy. Most of the time, imitations are a lot more expensive than some local brands, so it is still not a good idea to buy fake items. In this society, we cannot escape the judgements of other people. This is why some cannot refrain from buying imitations. But instead, stick to your values and do not think about what other people think, unless you want to be the devil who wears Frada. ...read more.
