Fashion Law London was born in 2019, upon the joint initiative of Giulia Gasparin, Eleonora Rosati, and Rosie Burbidge.
Its core mission has always been to build and deliver knowledge in relation to the legal issues affecting the fashion sector.
Rosie left in 2020. Now Fashion Law London is Giulia and Eleonora.
As of today, Fashion Law London has delivered residential events in London and, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, also online events.
