Best Practices for Brand Protection

As a small business owner, differentiating your company from your competition is essential. Naturally, your business name, tagline, product names and logo play a big part in that. Because they establish your business’s identity, you don’t want another business stealing the specific words and symbols you use to represent your company. Join FFFWeek and other small fashion business owners for this very valuable forum discussion.

Bring your cameras, charge your cell phone batteries and get ready to load fabulous images of our Big and Tall men to your social media accounts. This is a show you don't want to miss.

The State of the +Size Community

Let's talk! This collaborative panel was designed to create a platform for open dialogue about the current status of PLUS! The plus community has changed dramatically over the past 5 years. It is constantly evolving. By creating authentic dialogue, the goal is simple, we want to explore all things plus...the good, not so good, and the "how did that happen?" With a diverse panel, dynamic moderator and, of course, YOU, this is the perfect opportunity for the plus community to shake things up! Your VOICE and influence make the difference. Come with questions, notebooks, phone chargers (LOL) and an open heart. Stay plugged in folks, it's time to state the facts!
