Kim Kardashian on the Shapewear Name Controversy
In her interview, Kim talks about the controversy around originally naming her shapewear line Kimono. The word Kimono has been trademarked in other applications besides the traditional garment, and she references that.
I do realize, though, that there might be more eyes on me and my brand,” Kim says. “And so I have to tune it out and really learn and really grow and have to realize that maybe there is a different standard. Do I feel held to a higher standard? I’ll take responsibility for that and do the right thing.”
