Access Genuine Wholesale Suppliers of Authentic Designer Handbags, Clothing, Shoes & Accessories from hundreds of brands—Gucci, Michael Kors, Prada, Fendi, etc.—at up to 75% Off Retail
Looking for suppliers of authentic wholesale designer handbags, clothing, shoes and other goods for your business or a business you’d like to start?
Spent hours searching online for suppliers with little to no luck?
Found suppliers but not sure you can trust them—are they legitimate? Is their merchandise really authentic?
Purchased ‘wholesale lists’ that turned out to be junk?
Been burned by scam artists who sold you fake merchandise or took off with your money?
If so, I understand your frustration and I can help you. My name is Viktor. Back in 2002, I was trying to start a business selling designer handbags after reading a success story about a person who was making a lot of money in this business. But when I tried to find a supplier of wholesale designer handbags, it felt impossible. I’d spend countless hours searching online and hardly get anywhere—running into either questionable suppliers, replica dealers or just plain dead ends.
The frustrating thing was I knew these suppliers existed: I saw people selling authentic designer handbags on eBay and other websites, but I couldn’t figure out where they were getting them from. No one wanted to talk.
Eventually, when I found a supplier of wholesale designer handbags whom I thought I could trust—a company based in Italy, no less—I purchased a few thousand dollars worth of Prada handbags from them, and they turned out to be fake. I was devastated.
Determined to find a legitimate supplier, I pressed on. A few months later, I had my break: an online seller of designer handbags gave me their supplier’s information—I could hardly believe it. Equipped with this knowledge, I began successfully selling this merchandise as a business.
Long story short, from that point until now, I have learned a lot about this business. I’ve made connections with people in the industry and discovered dozens more suppliers of not only wholesale designer handbags, but also designer clothing, shoes, accessories, etc.
And now I want to share this information with you, so you can source authentic designer merchandise at wholesale and avoid the scams, con artists and sellers of fake goods.
Finding Legitimate Suppliers of Designer Goods is Not Easy
- Many legitimate suppliers have little-to-no presence online, often known only to industry insiders
- Many legitimate suppliers do not publicly disclose the designer brands they carry
- Much of the merchandise you see advertised online is either for fake or non-existent goods, making it very difficult to know whom to trust
Many Suppliers Selling “Authentic” Goods are Selling Fakes
They’re selling what’s called ‘7 Star’ replicas or ‘Mirror Image’ replicas. And these aren’t just any replicas. They’re top-of-the-line knockoffs made in China which come complete with authenticity cards, dust covers, and even serial numbers. They look so much like the real thing, many people can’t tell the difference.
And get this: I’ve taken some of these replicas to a major department store here in the United States and been told by their sales person that they were authentic! That’s how good they are. Granted, they didn’t fool every sales person.
So you have to be very careful when dealing with suppliers of designer goods, especially those offering wholesale designer handbags. If you don’t know this business very well, it’s easy to be duped. I know people with good intentions that have bought and sold replicas—thinking they were selling the real thing—for months without ever knowing. The problem: this merchandise is illegal (even if you tell your customers it’s fake, it’s still illegal). It’s ‘trademark infringement’, punishable by law.Authentic merchandise is much harder to come by and isn’t nearly as readily available wholesale.
Con Artists Are Rampant in this Industry
The demand for wholesale designer handbags and other designer goods is high and the supply is relatively low, if we’re talking authentic product. Because of this fact, this industry is rife with con artists.
In fact, most of the offers you see online advertising authentic designer goods on sites like Dhgate.com are for fake merchandise or non-existent goods.
The con artists behind these operations can be very convincing, with elaborate websites, price lists with pictures of inventory (stolen from reputable sellers), and phone numbers. Yet, when you pay them for merchandise—typically with a wire transfer or money order—they disappear.
Many people get scammed buying designer goods wholesale. If you don’t know this industry well, it’s very easy to get taken. I can’t stress this enough.
Some Designer Brands are Impossible to Get Wholesale
A few designer brands are so exclusive with the distribution of their goods, it is not possible to find them wholesale…anywhere.
Louis Vuitton is one of these brands. Louis Vuitton wholesales their merchandise to their boutiques, which are owned by the brand. They do not wholesale to anyone else—Nordstrom, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, you name it. Because of this, it is not possible to get LV wholesale. Period.
In fact, if you come across a supplier selling Louis Vuitton wholesale, I can guarantee you it’s fake.
The exception to this is with pre-owned goods. You can find pre-owned LV wholesale. There are a few other designer brands which operate this way, but not to worry, it’s not the norm. Most designers brands can be found at wholesale, if you know where to look.
How You Can Tell If A Supplier of Designer Goods is Legitimate
Here are 6 things that legitimate suppliers of wholesale designer handbags & other designer merchandise typically have in common. These suppliers:
Offer Merchandise that can be Authenticated by the Designer which means that if you mail the merchandise to the designer to have it authenticated or take it to a boutique, they will verify that it’s authentic. It also means that the designer will typically honor any repairs, warranty issues, etc. that may arise because the product is genuine.
Offer Wholesale Pricing so you can make a profit which, on average, is anywhere from 50-85% off retail for past-season merchandise and 25-45% off retail for current season merchandise.
Offer Past-Season Merchandise – More often than not, legitimate suppliers of wholesale designer handbags and other goods sell past-season merchandise. This typically consists of overstock, excess
and closeout inventory. This kind of inventory is the bulk of what’s available if we’re talking “authentic” product. That being said, current season inventory can be found wholesale, but it represents a small portion of the market.
Accept Credit Cards or PayPal – Many (not all) genuine suppliers accept payment methods that are traceable and reversible, the most common being credit cards and PayPal. With these forms of payment you are protected should anything go wrong. Be very leery of suppliers that only accept wire transfers or money orders unless you are confident that they are legitimate, because once you send them your money, it’s almost impossible to get it back (unless they willingly refund you, of course). I caution people to only use wire transfers with suppliers with whom they have an established relationship.
Have Limited Inventory and Styles that Change from Season-to-Season – Designer merchandise has a very high demand and limited quantities are intentionally produced, which makes the wholesale market small. It’s always a red flag when you see a supplier that has the same styles season-after-season and seemingly endless quantities of merchandise, especially wholesale designer handbags. Legitimate suppliers will have new styles every season (with the exception of signature pieces) and limited amounts of inventory.
Provide their Contact Information Up Front – Legitimate suppliers are always up front with their contact information. A supplier’s name, address (which should NOT be a PO BOX or a UPS address), telephone number, and e-mail should not be a secret or hidden in any way. It’s a huge red flag if you have to do any digging to find out where a supplier is located, how to get into contact with them, etc—seem obvious, but I can’t tell you how many people have done business with suppliers where this has been the case.
If a company claims to be a legitimate supplier of wholesale designer handbags or other designer goods and cannot meet the above guidelines, it is usually in your best interest to avoid doing business with them.
Where Can You Find Legitimate Suppliers of Authentic Wholesale Designer Handbags, Clothing, Shoes, & More?
Well, you can either invest a lot of time and money into doing the research yourself (like I did) or you can use my online Wholesale Designer Directory and hit the ground running by benefiting from my research—research that I learned the hard way, through trial and error and connections made from years of experience in the designer apparel business.
The directory I have complied contains suppliers of authentic wholesale designer handbags, clothing, shoes, sunglasses, jewelry, perfume, cosmetics, accessories, and more. Every single company in my Wholesale Designer Directory has been thoroughly screened.
These are the exact same sources that successful online stores, eBay® and Amazon® sellers, boutiques and other re-sellers use.
What Makes My Directory Different?
Unlike most people offering wholesale lists related to designer merchandise, I have over a decade’s experience in this business. I walk the walk. I started out in 2003 with no experience and eventually built up a successful business selling designer merchandise. I learned about the industry the hard way, through trial and error. I’ve made many mistakes. I’ve been scammed by suppliers that have sold me merchandise that I though was authentic. I’ve lost a lot money. I’ve made a lot of money.
I’ve developed contacts in this industry that only come from years of experience. With this experience, I offer more than just the supplier listings themselves—which no doubt are valuable—I provide insider knowledge into how this business works: how to work with suppliers, tips on selling merchandise, things to look out for, etc. I provide this information as a supplement to the directory, and I believe this information is just as important as the directory itself.
Every supplier listed in my directory has been screened and is a genuine supplier of authentic wholesale designer handbags and other designer merchandise. I take this seriously. If a supplier is listed in my directory, they are legitimate. Once approved into the directory, I periodically review the suppliers to ensure they remain on the up and up.
The directory is online. It’s in a password-protected members’ only site. Having an online directory makes it possible to keep the information up-to-date at all times (directories that are printed on paper can be outdated in an instant). When I come across new suppliers, you’ll be able to view this information right away when you login. If there’s an issue with a supplier, it’s handled right away and all members are notified. You won’t find this kind of relevancy with other wholesale lists.
“We cut through the scams, fake merchandise and unscrupulous suppliers and connect you to only legitimate sources, saving you time, money and stress.”

Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve heard it’s not possible to buy “authentic” designer goods at wholesale. Designers do not wholesale. How is it possible that your suppliers are able to offer designer goods at wholesale? While it’s true the designers, themselves, do not wholesale, it is still possible to buy authentic designer goods at wholesale. To do this, you have to look to the ‘secondary market’ and buy from either jobbers (suppliers of off-price goods) or authorized dealers who are clearing excess, overstock or shelf pull inventory. This is the only way to source authentic designer goods wholesale. Are these wholesalers that I can find simply searching on the internet? For the most part, no. Many of these suppliers do not advertise themselves online. They don’t need to. They are primarily only know to those people in the industry.
