Gianni Versace Couture blazer - fake or not?!
I'm new to the forum and came across it when doing an online search regarding GV Couture.
The reason for it is, that I've bought a Gianni Versace Couture blazer off ebay.
Regarding the pics in the auction everything seemed to be fine which means that in my opinion it was typically Versace's style, the close up pics were decent and the seller had a good ranking.
Now that the blazer has arrived at my door, I'm not so sure anymore that it is authentic.
The blazer really looks nice but beside the fact that it does not fit - it is an European 48 in contrast to European 50 claimed by the vendor - the Gianni Versace Couture Label inside the blazer has not been fixed with real great care and looks a bit sloppy and also the inner lining - though some parts of the blazer seem to be hand made - has some weak spots at the bottom for what stitching to the blazer itself is concerned.
As said before, it really looks nice but I expected a blazer that would knock me off my feet regarding the construction level and materials used but in fact - at least in my opinion - it is not enough to be a Couture suit...
Further there aren't any production or care instruction labels inside the blazer. The seller mentioned it in his auction und explained that it was used as and in fact is a runway sample during NY's fashion week so I did not do any further investigation but now I'm quite concerned if it's a fake or not.
Since the seller does not offer any refund I would like to sell the blazer, especially since it does not fit... but only if I can honestly claim that it is not a fake but real GV couture line...
Would be really great if someone could help to clear things up a little!
This is the link to the auction where you can find detailed pics of the blazer. Hope that helps!
Thanks in advance,
With best Regards,
