The symposium also highlighted the rise of streetwear for luxury brands featuring Baptisteâ€™ Ellard, creator of the Louis Vuitton boombox, a fusion ofÂ fashion andÂ tech. Also featured wasÂ Daniel Bellizio of Bellizio+Igel, aÂ law firm with expertise supportingÂ creatives. Bellizio stressed that we must stop qualifying streetwear as a separate category. â€śIt is design,â€ť he said.
The Fashion Law Instituteâ€™s Founder and Academic Director Susan Scafidi closed out the symposium with a panel on intellectual property and social mediaâ€”discussing how the Instagram account for Diet Prada and others are calling out copying in fashion.
Weâ€™d like to thank Professor Scafidi and her team at the Fashion Law Institute for hosting another amazing fashion law symposium. Please save the date for the next annual symposium, scheduled for April 12, 2019.
