Happy New Week folks. I wish you a healthy and productive week ahead.

REMINDER: As a reminder, U.C Hastings College of Law (my alma mater) will present the first ever west coast Fashion Law Symposium featuring some of the brightest legal minds in fashion law. It includes yours truly as well as Staci Riordan (Founder, Loyola Fashion Law Project), and Susan Scafidi (Founder, Fordham Fashion Law Institute). It is a free event, and a great networking opportunity for law students, attorneys, and of course you fashion industry professionals as well. So, do mark your calendar for February 28th, 2014 and see you soon!
