We act for an array of the best known names in fashion from high street labels to luxury brands. We have a wealth of experience auditing the various strands of fashion licensing from clothing accessories (shoes, sunglasses etc) to non-clothing accessories (perfumes, umbrellas, garden furniture etc) to territorial licensing, where licensees tailor, produce and distribute entire collections in their territory (particularly Japan and China).
From an audit perspective, fashion contracts tend to be rich with clauses worthy of audit, from the treatment of sales to the brand owner to marketing requirements, so its perhaps unsurprising that we have recovered literally millions of pounds for our clients.
More than any other sector, we are acutely aware of the paramount importance of the long and established relationships between brand owner and licensee. While our approach is always extremely professional, during fashion audits we are particularly careful to work closely with the licensee and include them in the audit process. This helps to ensure that the relationship is maintained.
