10th Annual Symposium

So, 2020. Every year our annual symposium is the highlight of the fashion law calendar, but as the coronavirus spread last spring, we postponed it and instead offered you the first online panel on fashion and the pandemic – and realized that hundreds more participants were able to join us simultaneously from all over the world.

We now bring you our 10th Annual Symposium, Silver Linings, running for four consecutive Fridays during fashion month and beyond. The pandemic may keep us working from home in loungewear for the moment, but we can still come together as a fashion law community to celebrate, interrogate, and advance the substance of style. YOU are the silver lining of 2020, and we look forward to seeing you online soon!

DATE: September 25 and October 2, 9, and 16, 2020
TIME: 8:45-10:00am New York time
NYS CLE: 6 hours total (see individual panels for details)

In a world challenged by COVID-19 lockdowns and other political struggles and ethical concerns, the fashion industry is united in our search for new business strategies. How can fashion designers and businesses protect themselves amidst a global recession? What does the revision of the fashion calendar mean for sales cycles, and should the industry be setting a common calendar at all? What are the best ways for fashion brands and media outlets to address diversity and inclusion? Is sustainability sustainable when companies are struggling to survive? This special event co-hosted with Central Saint Martins will explore how fashion professionals and companies can adapt to these and other emerging challenges, with speakers including Professors Susan Scafidi and Jeff Trexler along with other industry guests.

SPEAKERS INCLUDE:

  • Abisade Adenubi, Heritage Apparels
  • John Maltbie, Louis Vuitton
  • Don M. Obert, The Obert Law Firm
  • Stephen Sidkin, Fox Williams
  • Jeff Trexler, Moda Legal
