Course Description

Time 60 minutes
Difficulty Intermediate

3D Printing is having profound effects on the fashion industry. At the time of the original course, there were few examples of 3D printing in the fashion industry, focusing mainly on smart mirrors, avant-garde couture, and molds. Now it’s time to look at whether 3D printing is primarily affecting massed-produced goods such as handbag embellishments, or cosmetic bags, or whether it is yet permeating high fashion.

Before advising your client that a contract is signature-ready, attorneys should be aware of how pervasive 3D technology can be on the fashion life cycle. Specifically, they must account for the impact of the technology on vendor agreements, consumer interaction, and more. Join Rania V. Sedhom, Founding Member, Sedhom Law Group, PLLC, a Bespoke Law Firm, as she discusses 3D technology and how it relates to fashion.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Grasp 3D printing mechanics and and its applicability to the fashion Industry
  2. Identify the advantages and disadvantages of the technology from both a business and legal standpoint
  3. Recognize current uses and impact on the fashion industry
  4. Review currently unanswered (and maybe unanswerable) legal questions
