Give Me GIVENCHY Fashion Law Network

    • Business News

This episode is all about the French luxury Givenchy fashion house. I begin with some brief history of the fashion house including how LVMH acquired the Givenchy company in the mid 80’s. Then I discuss patent and trademark law in relation to Givenchy focusing on trade dress which is a form of trademark law that I have not yet discussed on this podcast series. Finally, I illustrate how trade dress may be used in a fashion context by discussing and analyzing the trade dress infringement lawsuit of Givenchy v. BCBG Max Azria. Enjoy and thank you for listening!

Episode Notes: 

1. Givenchy S.A. v. BCBG Max Azria Group, Inc. CV10-8394 (C.D. Cal. 2010)
