Last week was a pretty big week for CanadaFashionLaw. The week started with a publication in the University of Toronto Alumni magazine authored by yours truly that looks at the wider ramifications of the fashion industry. Next up, CanadaFashionLaw participated in a heated debate at the Royal Ontario Museum with fashion heavy hitters including Jeanne Beker, which garnerd significant media coverage. Finally, the week ended with a trip to Chicago for a fashion law symposium at the John Marshall Law School, where CanadaFashionLaw participated in a comparative panel that looked at protecting fashion designs in Canada, America and Mexico.
All in all, it was a fantastic fashion law week!
