About 125,000 tons of confiscated knock-off designer goods are being shipped to Haiti right now, says the NY Post. Sporting fake labels including Nike, Ed Hardy, True Religion, Antik Denim, Diesel, Jordan, Rocawear, Ralph Lauren, and Christian Audigier were seized from a storage space in Brooklyn last year. The Brooklyn DA office managed to get execs from the real brands to agree before the goods were dispatched to the earthquake-ravaged country. [NY Post]
