Fashion Law Symposia and Events

The fashion industry is influenced by a number of factors:  changes in consumer demand, technology, changes in the law, and changes in the global business environment.  The Fashion Law Project at Loyola is designed to assist legal and fashion industry professionals to keep abreast of these changes, enabling them to provide their clients with the well-informed business and legal advice.

The Project annually will create a forum for legal and fashion industry professionals to connect with one another and to learn about cutting edge issues relevant to fashion law.

Symposia: Green is the New Black - Sustainability in Fashion 

Some say that fashion is just the same idea recycled time and time again. Yet entrepreneurs continue to launch new ventures, companies continue to innovate, and brands evolve to meet the needs of today's highly connected consumer. So if nothing is "new," why does fashion's $350 billion industry continue to not only grow, but also thrive?

Join us on April 1, 2016 at Loyola's Spring Fashion Law Symposium to answer this question, discuss challenges to sustaining a fashion brand in an ever-changing industry, introduce new developments in fashion as a leader in technology, and ask why "green" is truly the new black!

Topic one: Good Things Come in Green Packages: Sustainability in the Supply Change

Topic two: Touch Love: Sustaining a Fashion Brand from Start-Up to Scale

Topic three: Truth in Advertising: The Art of Storytelling Within Federal Trade Commission Rules
