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 unique. There’s its seasonality and fast-moving product life cycles; its critical selling periods, commercial partnerships and corporate ventures, and its resourcing issues.
Today we’re seeing the rise of fashion on-line and the challenges for brands and retailers who have a combination of shops and an on-line presence. We’ve seen successful brands undermined by counterfeit attacks. And we’re also seeing the rise of the influencer who can create significant sales with a social media post.
We provide legal advice 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.
Our Fashion Law Group publishes Fashion Focus, a regular newsletter, sends tweets from @FashionlawyerGB, and holds seminars providing 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.
