Fashion law embraces many areas of law from helping to set up finance for a young designer to protection of the design of a garment, the booking of models showing the collection, the publicity of a show, exporting the garments to other markets, the sale and licensing of the collection and everything in between.
The law of fashion touches all individuals that work in the fashion industry from designers, to models, photographers, agencies, stylists and bloggers. All will at some stage come into contact with diverse areas of law including copyright, design and trademarks, financing, debt collection, international law, migration law, workplace relations law and basic contract issues.
This blog aims to give you some insight into the issues that you may face on a daily basis and alert you to issues that are becoming more prominent in the industry generally. Working internationally exposes us to what’s going on in the fashion industry generally so although it may not be happening in your neck of the woods today like all trends it will sure as hell turn up next season!
