Fashion

A passion for fashion.

This fashion industry is a global phenomenon.

Fashion can define who you are or want to be – and, in creating an international language understood by millions of people, it has a powerful voice.

As an industry, it is also unique. There’s its seasonality and fast-moving product life cycles; its critical selling periods, commercial partnerships and corporate ventures, and its resourcing issues. There is also the very clear and present danger experienced by its successful brands of counterfeit attack.

We act for businesses across the fashion spectrum: from designers through brands and their intermediaries to wholesalers and retailers - we have clients at all stages of the supply chain.

We are passionate about the industry and, as the result of our work for our many fashion clients, embedded within it. Our Fashion Law Group issues Fashion Focus, a quarterly newsletter, as well as period alerts, sends tweets from @UKFashionLaw, and holds annual seminars offering updates and advice on relevant legal developments appropriate to all aspects of the industry. We’re members of and regularly speak at a variety of trade associations and other bodies operating within the fashion industry.

There is no learning curve at our clients’ expense
