For Modèle Déposé, the Fashion Week is also an opportunity to assist fashion houses when it comes to prior art searches in order to ensure that the design is not already protected. We help lawyers verify the originality of a design before we can see it on the runways. We undertake researches in our specific archives (books, magazines, sales catalogs, etc.), on the Internet, in museums, in IP databases, etc.

The expertise of our team and immediate access to information allow us to undertake ultra-fast searches !
