CATWALK JUSTICE: What Is UGG’s Legal Beef With ’80s Band Roxette?

Catwalk Justice is our weekly column on fashion law, courtesy Charles Colman of Charles Colman Law, PLLC and LAW OF FASHION. This week we learn about the fashion law movement ( it is a movement, people), why a bunch of designers went to Washington on Friday and why UGG is suing Roxette.

Fashion law, which takes up the lion’s share of this writer’s work day, definitely got its due this week. Top fashion lawyer Staci Riordan of Fox Rothschild LLP officially declared fashion law a “movement,” just six years after the very phrase “fashion law” drew laughter from her friends and colleagues. Meanwhile, legal industry blog Above The Law interviewed yours truly about what exactly “fashion law” is, and asked whether there’s “room for other lawyers in the fashion law space.” My response: fashion usually “cannot be the sole focus of one’s practice”; however, if this week is any indication, that may soon change.
