Law & fashion - does this career exist?

Postby LittleMM » Mon Jun 04, 2012 1:20 am

I have two loves in life - law and fashion. I really love law school and legal work, but I have also wanted to build a career in fashion (fashion journalism, becoming a buyer for Shopbop, that sort of thing - I can't design for sh*t). Is there any career path that allows one to work in both worlds?

Are you serious? How long have you been in law school?

I know there are people who represent fashion houses and do IP work for them. Also there are firms that do the corporate work for large fashion companies. There must be a very niche practice working for fashion companies as clients, but I have no idea how to start it, how to find it.

If you are in New York you should try to go to this upcoming event I just saw on the abcny website on the fashion industry and law: on june 13:

I think you should make career in a field in which you have more interest. As per my knowledge there is no one career path in which you can do both work(law, fashion) but you can take help from career coach.

Yes, but it is clearly a niche area that would be hard to break into.

You can either be the person who has to send these kinds of letters:

or, the kind who gets to speak at these events:

Enforce the law against Tyra Banks. Lol. Models who can't "smeyes" shouldn't be fired.

No...in all seriousness, it can't be that different from entertainment law in general, where intellectual property, contract and advertising issues abound. So a "fashion lawyer" could theoretically specialize in corporate law, but within the fashion-entertainment sphere. You're really talking about an intellectual property and entertainment law foundation. There are lawyers who do this.

Go to Stanford, Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Loyola, Southwestern, Yale, Columbia, NYU, or Fordham.
