Explaining beauty, luxury goods, and fashion law

This industry covers a variety of legal disciplines. Advertisement law, business law, intellectual property law, international commercial law, and contract law are just some of the legal branches that those in the fashion world must consider. Avoiding fashion lawsuits should be a priority for all working in the fashion sector, from fashion designers to brand owners.

With the rise of e-commerce sites and online shopping, the chances of counterfeit sales has risen significantly in the last few years. Global counterfeit sales caused a dizzying loss of profits in the last few years. No one wants their fashion brand to diminish in value – it can take a huge knock to business..
