Law à la Mode: Fashion and retail legal challenges: fast fashion, metaverse, BNPL and more

Hello and welcome to our 34th edition of Law à la Mode.

As in previous editions of Law à la Mode, DLA Piper colleagues from across jurisdictions have worked in collaboration to bring you articles to address the most topical challenges and opportunities that the fashion and retail sector are currently facing.

From fast fashion and digital disruption, to COVID-19 rent arrears and buy now pay later schemes, this edition showcases the ever-evolving regulatory landscape that organisations within the sector must keep abreast of.

The word from the industry’s mouth in this edition sees our Global Consumer Goods, Food and Retail Sector, Co-Chair, Noel Haywood, interview Elliot Isaacs, Founder and CEO of medical grade skincare brand Medik8. With the growing trend for such products still on the rise, Elliot discusses how the vision of Medik8 was brought to life whilst focussing in on the importance of embedding SESG strategy into the heart of all business operations.

We hope that you enjoy this edition of Law à la Mode. If you have any comments or feedback, please get in touch with DLA Piper's Consumer Goods, Food and Retail sector group.
