Lessons From Fashion’s Free Culture

Written By bryanboy

Where do you stand when it comes to copyright protection in fashion? Are you FOR or AGAINST it? I’m still trying to decide which camp I belong which is why I’m doing my best to educate myself more and more about this issue. Let me share to you a video I saw many months ago. Johanna Blakely spoke at the Ted x USC conference last year.


  1. For it, but only outright copies of brands like fake Gucci, etc., like they were meant to come off as a certain name, as opposed to a style. Otherwise, ideas are meant to be copied in the fashion world!

  2. Totally agreeing with Yoony right here, I am for it, but it is when comes to the fact that I am buying an item that has the name of a designer that I know it’s more expensive, like buying a fake Chanel bag, now I am against that, but if it’s a similar style with a name of another brand and more affordable, ideas are and will always be copied by others.
