The field of fashion and beauty law is relatively new, and this exciting new edition touches on a variety of legal issues in the multi-national, billion-dollar world of fashion.
Fashion law touches on an incredible variety of legal issues, from intellectual property to employment to international trade regulation to civil rights. Much has changed in the fashion industry since the end of World War II to require more highly developed legal skills and, happily, a much greater allocation to legal expense. The industry is entirely global and a surprisingly large number of members have grown into mega multi-nationals, with large in-house legal departments and brand-name law firms to match the power of their own brand names.
