Approved by the National Bar Council, this Qualiopi certified training course can be paid for by a collecting body.


As it proliferates, particularly on the Internet and social networks, global counterfeiting is more than ever a major concern for players in the fashion, luxury and design industries. And to protect their image, traceability is becoming an essential response.


The state of play of traceability


This day will notably take stock of existing traceability systems and raise awareness of those of the future which will facilitate the follow-up of the product from production to sale.


Its programme will be copious.


After a welcome and breakfast at 8.30 am, Dominique Laulhe-Desauw, Head of Operations Coordination at LEXPOSIA SAS, will introduce the day at 9 am.


Emmanuelle Hoffman, Partner at HOFFMAN, specializing in intellectual property law and former member of the Paris Bar Council, will give the opening speech and announce the programme.

She will discuss the subject with Yann Basire, Doctor in Intellectual Property Law at CEIPI, Senior Lecturer at CEIPI, University of Strasbourg, Director General and Director of the French Section of CEIPI and Linda Boudour, Magistrate, Third Chamber at the Paris Judicial Court


At 10.30 a.m., a break will allow for exchanges over coffee and some pastries.

At 2pm, Nathalie CROSS-COITTON, CEO of Women Management and a leading figure in the world of luxury and fashion, in which she has worked for 35 years, will be signing her latest book. Catwalk, itinéraire d’une femme de mode. Beyond a woman’s journey, it traces the evolution of fashion and the way the body is viewed in our society.


Innovation and Metavers


The afternoon will be devoted to intellectual property in all its forms, and to questions of innovation and Metavers in particular.


Among the themes addressed :


. Advances in blockchain to enable better management of the brand and the responsibilities involved.

. The possibilities offered by innovative technologies and their legal impact

. New materials, whether of vegetable or synthetic origin, leading to increased responsibility for textile companies, the environmental issue now being a priority.

A responsible market
