Gemma Collins caught buying fake designer clothes on famous ‘counterfeit street’September 15, 2019
TOWIE diva Gemma Collins went on a shopping spree for fake designer clothes just hours after plugging luxury brands.
The self-styled fashionista, who bills herself as an “international icon”, visited Britain’s most notorious trading venue.
The 38-year-old owns her own label, selling the Gemma Collins Collection for up to £80 an item.
But two weeks ago she visited a lockup on Manchester’s Bury New Road, opposite Strangeways prison and bought fake T-shirts at £12, or two for £20.
This area is known for regular police raids, which have exposed a phoney goods racket worth millions.
A shopkeeper let the star into the indoor market on “Counterfeit Street”, so named because nearly every shop sells copycat items.
Onlookers were stunned when she bought several items after asking which were available in XL.
A source said: “She was looking at fake Gucci and Balenciaga but ended up buying Fendi and Givenchy.
“She has so much money and she brags about her designer wardrobe on TV and Instagram yet she is buying knock-off stuff.”
Hours earlier, she was posing inside WAG pal Tanya Bardsley’s boutique 15 miles away in trendy Wilmslow, Cheshire.
