A problem that sometimes arises is adversarial sponsorship. For example, the labels found in Mercedes-Benz tents cannot be addressed to car manufacturers other than sponsors. But if the designer performs elsewhere, automakers are a fair game — that`s why the Rag and Bone Land Rover label could sign up for last September`s Fashion Week. It was both a sponsorship tax and Land Rover, which supplied cars to Rag-Bone V.I.P. customers, said Douglas Hand, a lawyer for Baldachin Amburgey, who was involved in negotiating the contract. OC FASHION WEEK has the right to collect a pre-termination fee if you leave an event or if you do not attend, or if you do not sign a design and/or sponsorship form, as previously agreed by the parties. This tax includes reasonable damage to OC FASHION WEEK as a result of your violation and is not a penalty. OC FASHION WEEK reserves the right to charge location and equipment rental fees. OC Fashion Week® is authorized to use a customer`s name, logo and images to promote the customer, OC Fashion Week® and the catwalk show they will present without restriction. MUSICAL RIGHTS: IMG has signed a contract with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), the organization that controls music rights. For fashion shows, ASCAP allows designers to play most artists without worrying about copyright infringement of record labels, said Steve Gordon, an entertainment lawyer who discussed the issue at a roundtable at Fordham Law School last week. Some of the standard rules include lighting, seating and how long the designer will have access to the tents.
Tent contracts also require literature to tell the full name of the event for each show and that a designer`s sponsors do not run into the official sponsors of the week. With Diet Pepsi as a sponsor this year, for example, Diet Coke probably wouldn`t be allowed. Whether it`s a family photography contract or a wedding document, the photographer should always have the latest and most compelling examples. The examples are intended to present a variety of photographic ideas and machining techniques. They should also be relevant. You can`t present food photos if you sign a contract for fashion photography, can you? The submission, sponsorship agreement and participation agreement of this designer (“Agreement”) will govern the terms between you (“Designer” or “Sponsor” or “Sponsor” or “You” and OC FASHION WEEK), a california LLC (“OCFW” “OCFW” and/or “producer”) with respect to your participation as a designer, sponsor or participant in ocfashionweek.com and associated mobile applications (hereafter). TENTS: The most popular fashion shows are the IMG event at Lincoln Center, where tent rentals range from $16,500 to $65,000. Contracts for these places are generally non-negotiable and, like most Fashion Week agreements, are subject to secrecy.
