The grandson of Guccio Gucci made an appearance in Washington DC this week to support the two bills that would crack down on those producing and selling counterfeit goods.
At the Intellectual Property Rights in the Fashion Industry and Its Effects on Our Nation's Economy forum, Giorgio Gucci said:
"The people who are exploiting the work of others have no conscience. All women want nice things … so I understand how tempting it is … but any woman who carries a copy is hurting other women."
He also told the men in attendance that if they really loved their lady, they would buy them the real thing.
