We're authors!

Brian Igel

We were honored when Daniel was approached by the The American Bar Association (ABA) to pen a chapter on manufacturing for the ABA's Legal Guide to Fashion Design, the first fashion law book specifically authored by lawyers for a non-lawyer audience.  The book came out right before fashion week and, thanks to the CFDA, which purchased a copy for each of its 500 members, is now on back order.  The second printing is in process and you can place your order here.


Here's what others in the industry are saying about the book: 


"What a great book for everyone in our industry, especially young designers who are just starting out. These pages contain an enormous amount of valuable information, which is presented in very concise and easy to understand language. For those of us who are in the fashion design business, this book deserves a permanent spot on your desktop."
-- Nanette Lepore, designer 

"This book provides a detailed and practical understanding of the legal issues that apply to running a successful fashion company. The American Bar Association's Legal Guide to Fashion Design is a must-read for designers and executives of both big and small brands. It offers real expertise needed to compete in the global market." 
-Steven Kolb, CEO, Council of Fashion Designers of America

"The American Bar Association's Legal Guide to Fashion Design is marvelous. It's an essential resource for anyone looking to be or already in the fashion industry. " 
-Simon Collins, Dean, School of Fashion, Parsons The New School for Design

"A must read resource that joins the creative process with the ever complicated business/financial one. The book gives designers a rare opportunity to stay ahead of the curve while building their business. It should make its way into many industry hands." 
-Daniella Vitale, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Executive Vice President, Barneys New York

"We didn't create a field of fashion law for lawyers, we created it for designers and this ABA volume resonates with that spirit of helping designers to reap what they sew. The Fashion Financing chapter alone is an invaluable interdisciplinary resource." -Professor Susan Scafidi, Founder and Academic Director, Fashion Law Institute
