The fashion business can be a resource and labour intensive business. To get your business off the ground it is likely that you will need to secure funding from outside investors, which may require you to enter into a business partnership.
Own-it invited Annabelle Gauberti, founding partner of Crefovi - a London law firm for creative industries - to give a presentation on business partnerships for those in the fashion industry. Annabelle goes through the essentials, from the importance of a watertight business plan and budget allocation to actually negotiating with financial stakeholders.
Annablle has more than ten years of experience practising fashion law, also known in France as "droit du luxe" (law of luxury goods) and she has written numerous publications about it.
