Chapter 13: Raiding the fashion archive

Rosie Burbidge


Fashion archives whether physical or digital are an important social and business record which, if properly maintained, can be very helpful both in terms of designing new fashion items and proving the provenance of intellectual property rights. For the archive to be useful, it is essential that a clear record is maintained of the rights in each work which has been maintained. This includes the identity of any photographers, models, designers or artists as well as details of what was contractually agreed regarding their artistic works. If these records are lost, you are left with orphan works. This chapter looks at the various solutions to orphan works in the EU and considers the other legal issues you need to consider when using and maintaining a fashion archive.
