Fake Louis Vuitton bags seized from a popular 5-star hotel in Mumbai

FAKE Louis Vuitton bags confiscated from the official store at a 5-star hotel If you’ve recently shopped at the Oberoi Hotel’s mall, it could be that the luxury bag you’ve bought is a fake. Most of us have been entirely safe shopping in a 5-star hotel in recent times considering the excellent reputation. In the aftermath of the events, a cruel truth came to light.

After Gucci, Louis Vuitton; Prada finally sells online in China

Prada realized her mistake in underestimating the importance of an e-commerce site after her contemporaries. Prada said that this well-thought-out measure is to stabilize the company’s profits and also to recover from the declining sales in recent years. The Internet has quickly become the norm of life, and the one that enters into this spectrum is “ready to wear” and “pretty lines” of luxury brands.

Two Lessons To Take From the Enron Debacle

Just about everyone was fooled by the company’s shiny, polished exterior. But with the business now in ruins, a few points are worth noting. Just over a year ago, I had breakfast with Jeff Skilling, president and CEO-designate of Enron (ENE). The occasion was a Fortune magazine conference celebrating America’s most admired companies. Enron was ranked high on that list, and Skilling had come to share some of the company’s secrets for managing people. What a
