Chapter 6: Designs

Rosie Burbidge


Designs are a hugely valuable form of intellectual property for the fashion industry but few people know that they exist and even fewer realise how useful they can be. This chapter introduces the many different types of design including registered and unregistered Community Designs as well as UK unregistered design right. It discusses the different qualifying criteria as well as practical consideration such as which is the optimum design filing strategy and the international designs regime. This is an essential primer for those looking to understand designs law in Europe and recognise the opportunities that it affords the fashion industry in particular.
