can you copyright fashion design
While copyright protection is available for a wide range of creative works such as music, literature, and visual art, it has traditionally not been available for fashion designs.
This is because fashion designs are considered to be functional items, rather than works of art.
However, in recent years there has been a growing recognition of the need for copyright protection for fashion designs.

This is due in part to the increasing importance of branding and intellectual property in the fashion industry, as well as the growing trend of counterfeiting and knockoffs.
