Replica vs. Brand

Hey Guys image

Today I want to discuss the very annoying topic: 
Brand vs. Replica

In my Lolita beginnings, I bought three Angelic Pretty style replicas... Now two years have passed and I own five brand dresses. Three of them are from Angelic Pretty. The last dress I bought, was the Melty Chocolate Jumperskirt by AP, from which I also own the replica. Since I could compare the two dresses I must say, that brand is much better than the fake dress. I mean, the real dress is around 300€, the replica was 40€... When I was new in Lolita, I thought: "Wow ! A Angelic Pretty looking dress only for 40€ !" But now I know why it was so cheap :-/ I never was really happy with the melty chocolate fake.. And I considered a lot about buying the real one, 'cause I was scared that the brand dress looks and feels similar to the replica. But everything is different ! Better lace, softer fabric, it fits better and is more comfy. All the details are missing at the replica. At the first sign you don't see it, but if you look at it in detail and touch it in reality you will understand what I mean.

The other important thing is: You ruining the business of the brand!
Lolita brands are often very small and the designers have to work very hard.
Lolita brand dresses are very expensive through, but if you want a cheap dress, you better buy from a indiebrand or Bodyline. Indiebrand dresses have even more quality than replicas. 

It's not that I only want to buy the "name" and boast with my brand. (Like some people did with apple products...) It is really about the quality. I also have some nice cheap dresses ;)


 I never thought that I will write about this topic but I had it on my heart when I saw the big difference between my melty chocolate replica and the real melty dress, which I really love! 
That was the dress I ever dreamed of and the replica almost took my joy of it.

    1. Hey hab dein Kommentar per Email bekommen. Ich weiß nicht genau wie es mit den Patenten von AP asussieht.. das hat ja auch immer noch was damit zu tun. Aber größtenteils wird es wohl daran liegen, dass die Marken einfach zu unbekannt sind.
