Haiti is about to get some style. Around 125,000 tons of style.

About $10 million worth of knockoff designer goods is set to be donated to needy Haiti earthquake victims.

The fake duds "from" companies such as True Religion, Rocawear, Ralph Lauren, Diesel, and Ed Hardy will be shipped to Haiti after having their labels removed, per legal requirement.

Counterfeit goods are normally destroyed but an exception was made in this case.

The clothes and other items were netted in raids over the past two years.
