No Pictures, Please!

Designers frequently complain of uninvited photographers snapping pictures at trade shows and in retail venues, presumably with intent to copy the designs.  Some concerned stores, in an effort to protect their investments as well as their designer sources, ban in-store photography altogether.  One millinery expert, however, says that it takes more than a photo to make a knockoff hat -- or at least a "decent" one. 

So put on your Easter bonnet, head out to the closest parade, and smile for the cameras!
