At Sydney's Closet we make it a top priority to fight fake Prom and Wedding dresses produced by Chinese factories selling directly to consumers. Counterfeiting hurts everyone's bottom line. .

Phyllis Brasch Librach, president and founder of Sydney's Closet, serves as vice-president of the American Bridal and Prom Industry Association.  ABPIA, a non profit trade group, is leading the legal, political and social war against counterfeiters.

And making serious progress:

  • 9 million counterfeit web pages taken down by ABPIA
  • 1,500 counterfeit sites seized by ABPIA in federal court  
  • 5 prominent members of U.S. Congress back ABPIA's cause to strengthen laws and regulations
  • 4 government agencies work with ABPIA including Customs, the FBI and Homeland Security

The cost of the counterfeits is staggering. They rob our industry of an estimated $40 million dollars in market share each month.  That is more than $400 million a year.

ABPIA's mission is to:

  • protect the Prom and Bridal industry from counterfeit products
  • better educated consumers on the dangers of counterfeit products
  • provide benefits to member to help strengthen their profitability

Membership is FREE to all retailers.
