WASHINGTON — The Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill Wednesday that would give copyright protection to fashion designs for the first time.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) and named the Innovative Design Protection Act, would expand copyright laws to include fashion designs that are often the target of knockoff artists that profit from another designer’s creation.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
