At the beginning of April, Gigee Marie will be celebrating its one year anniversary. Time flies! There are a few goals that I wanted to accomplish for Gigee Marie before our one year anniversary, so for the last couple of months I've been working on a few new projects.

Ok, that title is so cliche and cheesy...but I had to :-) If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you've seen a couple "new" pieces that I've been working on. I introduced my envelope style clutches with the Python Clutch and the Transparent Clutch, and you guys seem to love them. This style is actually my favorite so I've decided to remix some of the past and existing clutches and make them in the envelope style. The Amethyst, Teal, Gold, Camo (yes, the Camo Clutch will be making a comeback!), and Cognac clutches will all be available soon in the envelope style. And that black envelope clutch with the leopard print lining that I showed you here...yea, that will be added to the shop too :-) I hope you like!

Fashion Law Week is an annual event that was created by Howard University's Law School students, aimed at addressing legal issues in the fashion industry. This year's theme was Intelligent Design: Protecting the Luxury Brand.
I had the pleasure of attending the keynote presentation, given by Harley Lewin, an Intellectual Property lawyer known around the world for his IP protection work, specifically in the luxury apparel industry. Mr. Lewin is most recently known for winning the most significant IP case in the world in the past 10 years -- Louboutin vs. Yves St. Laurent. Some of his other clients include Diane von Furstenberg, Cartier, Alexander Wang, Dior, and Givenchy.
Although the presentation was geared to an audience of legal professionals, there were several good key takeaways that I thought could be applicable to entrepreneurs.
