Buying high-end leather goods in Rome or Florence

Dooes someone know of a place where you can buy designer purses at a discount in either Florence or Rome?

Also, any recommendations on local, emerging designers?

Thanks.

Check out The Leather School in Florence. They have an on-line catalog and you can visit it while you're there.

Ther are a couple of designer outlets in Florence; (I am not referring to The Mall or any outside the city).

The problem is that I cannot remember the names; one that I am thinking of is on the south side of the Arno toward the western part of the city, if I am remmbering correctly. Maybe someone else here can be more helpful..

Yet you want them at a discount?

My Lady Wife found an absolutely wonderful opera cape at the leather school.

However, we weren't prepared to take out a second mortgage.
