Angie Boothroyd: having a good trade show

Past Project 2012

Going to a fair with your new designs requires a lot of preparation and consideration – and some of it should address legal issues. Jewellery designer Angie Boothroyd talks about why she shows her designs at trade and retail fairs and what she does to make it a success.

For example, Angie always commissions a professional photographer to take pictures of her designs. In order to retain control over the copies of these photos it is necessary to have a written agreement with the photographer.
