Hello, this is Gabriela Garzon at G.G. Image and Etiquette Consulting in Coral Gables, Florida. In this clip I'm going to talk about how to spot a fake Dooney and Bourke. Dooney and Bourke are known because they're very, I have an old black one, but, they are known lately and, well, recently, for having a lot of multi-color and they always have the monograms outside. But I will show you that, for example, Dooney and Bourke uses a lot of leather. You will hardly, hardly ever see a Dooney and Bourke that has....that is made out of, like, cloth or, sort of, like a soft type of material, 'cause they're always made of leather. Most of them are hard leather, and they are very, kind of, like classic shapes. And, another thing that you have to notice, as well, is Dooney and Bourke has, like, wide stitches. As you can see here, they're like, wide. They're kind of big for a purse, because they always come either in the middle or on the sides of the purse. In this case, it's on the middle, but it's very, very noticeable. So you will see it on both sides. And then you will always have, right here, the little name on it. Once again, this is Gabriela Garzon at G.G. Image and Etiquette Consulting.
