Fashion law just got hotter! There is a fashion law revolution and it is slowly but surely creeping up on everyone. I give it say five years and fashion law will be a “no big deal” discussion at law schools and  legal and fashion organizations. Can you imagine?  *Weird face* (Sarcastic tone) Yeah, I know right?

I was excited to read on my colleague Ms. Kenya Wiley’s Fashion Cloture blog that Howard Law School hosted its first ever fashion law week which began February 28, 2011 and ends March 4, 2011 . Very nice.

“Howard Law School’s Intellectual Property Students’ Association (IPSA) hosted a very dynamic and informative panel last night as part of IPSA’s Fashion Law Week. Fashion Attorney and Founding Owner of SBC IP Law Group, Mariessa Terrell, moderated the Fashion Law Roundtable. The panelists included: Kwame Brown, Chairman, DC City Council; Stephany Greene, fashion designer and style expert; Michael Grow, Co-Chair of the Intellectual Property Group at Arent Fox; Michelle Mitchell, Deputy Director of the National Export Initiative, International Trade Association; Kristina Montanaro, LLM Candidate; Darrel Gilbert Motley, Patent Attorney and President of the DC Bar Association; and Harry Thomas, Jr., Ward 5 Council Member.”
