Burkini bans in France and the resulting controversy are a powerful reminder of why fashion plays an important role in politics: what we wear defines who we are, both as individuals and as nations. Are religious rules for fashion consistent with democratic values? How do designers reconcile freedom with faith? Can fashion companies appeal to niche markets without alienating mainstream consumers? And what are the practical and political implications of the ABA’s new anti-discrimination rule? Join us as we launch an ongoing election-season discussion of the role of fashion in public life with “The Body Politic: From Banning Burkinis to Designing Democracy.”

WHO I WORK WITH: I have counseled a range of clients from musicians, models, actors, actresses, and designers, to diverse business owners in numerous areas of the law including contracts, business law, fashion and entertainment law, copyright, trademark, and intellectual property law. I bring over two decades of first-hand knowledge and experiences that are as diverse as they are deep in the fashion and entertainment industries (modeling, retail, production, public relations, journalism, and publishing).
