When it comes to the fashion industry there are a range of rights available to designers. Alice Stagg, from Wragge & Co (wragge.com/) solicitors goes through each of the these rights to protect fashion design, from unregistered and registered design rights to copyright, and provides illustrative case studies on the topic. Although there is some overlap between them which right you choose to rely on will ultimately be dependant upon your individual requirements, for instance copyright does not protect designs that are mass produced.

Weave Waves brings together sound artist Scanner and textile designer Ismini Samanidou. They are exploring sound, geography and mapping, and how this data relates to textile-weave structures and musical scores.
Scanner and Samanidou have been inspired by the visual and technical similarities between the digital software they both use, the physicality of code and how this in turn relates to mechanisms for mapping and recording the sounds of a city.
