Fashion Law Update – August 2022 Edition

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the why we live, what is happening.”

Coco Chanel

In this edition of Fashion Law, we cover a range of topics which are having an impact on businesses and consumers in the fashion and luxury products sector worldwide.

From the Russian-Ukrainian war which continues, through to new EU and UK brand distribution rules, we look at the key developments and answer the most commonly asked questions.

We also take a closer look at the rise of digital payments, social media influencers, intellectual property protection and the extension of the French Labour Code to regulate the commercial exploitation of images of children on online platforms. In addition, we highlight copyright and trade mark changes in Australia that brands should be aware of.

This update provides a thorough snapshot of the key issues in this sector around the world. Our team is keeping track of these developments and can provide more information if you have further questions.
