A FASHION model with Guernsey connections is the first model to register her image rights.
The family of Megan Williams, pictured, is from the island and she lived in Guernsey for a while as a child. Now she is on the books of the world-famous Storm agency and going places as a face of American brand Guess, among others.
Guernsey trust company Liberation Management and law firm Appleby have jointly filed an application for the registration of her personality and image rights on the Guernsey register. They hope that it might lead to more registrations from the fashion world.
‘Our initial contact with Megan came through family connections and it was an interesting experience for us to get involved in the world of high fashion and image rights registrations. We hope it will be the first of many,’ said David Rowlinson, managing director of Liberation Management, an independent trust company founded in the island in 2007.
‘Megan’s career is really going places and she was delighted to have the opportunity to strengthen her links with and hopefully help promote the island through this registration.’
