While dressing a political figure can help a brand gain national exposure and boost sales, it can also lead to occasional backlash. In a new piece for Business of Fashion, Chavie Lieber delves into the risks and rewards of dressing political figures. "With the rise of social media and a heightened sense of activism, more shoppers are hyper-tuned into the style choices of the political figures they idolize," Lieber writes. "For designers, this can pose a serious challenge: who do you dress, and what do you do when someone whose values don't align with yours flaunts your collection?" {Business of Fashion

Several models are suing Moda Operandi and Vogue for unauthorized image use
The Fashion Law reports that a group of 44 models represented by Next Management filed an 87-page compliant in a New York federal court this month claiming that both Moda Operandi and Vogue "broadly" used images of them despite knowing that their authorization was required.

The plaintiffs are now seeking compensatory and exemplary damages, as well as a permanent injunction to bar the defendants from making such alleged unauthorized uses of their images in the future. {The Fashion Law
