  • The Changing World of Fashion Modeling Law
  • The regulation of modeling has become one of the hottest areas of fashion law today. Should there be mandatory rules for models’ weight? A minimum age to be a model? Government standards for Photoshopping? And what about models’ ownership of their images and other forms of legal protection?
  • Social Media and the Future of Fashion Law
  • Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp — the Internet and smartphones have given everyone connected to the fashion industry new ways to interact, but are old laws enough to regulate the ever-evolving world of social media? Data security and privacy, the adequacy of existing advertising regulations and consumer protection laws, and the impact of social media on contracts and compliance are just a few of the issues that have emerged in recent years, and the challenges posed by social media will only increase.

Speakers include Prof. Susan Scafidi, Founder and Academic Director, Fashion Law Institute; Elisabetta Mina, Vice-President, Review Board, Istituto dell’Autodisciplina Pubblicitaria; Giangiacomo Olivi, Partner, DLA Piper; Barbara Pozzo, Professor, University of Insubria; Doreen Small, Partner, Marquart & Small, and Professor of Fashion Modeling Law, Fashion Law Institute; Elena Varese, Associate, DLA Piper; Elena Mansueto, Model Manager, Elite Milano; Paola Vee, Editor-in-Chief, Les Cahiers – Fashion Marketing.  

We look forward to seeing you soon!
