According to L.A. Triumph Inc., Madonna is using the Material Girl Brand illegally.
It seems that the company filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming she soled their trademark. The L.A. Triumph’s attorney said: ‘Our client and its predecessor have been continually selling similar clothes in similar retail outlets at similar price points under their Material Girl brand since at least 1997 and Madonna and her new-found company do not have the right to trade in the same space under this brand.’
Even so, Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, 13, was the one that designed the Material Girl Brand, that Madonna is being sued now. The singer told People magazine how Lourdes inspired the clothing line: ‘I usually tell her to take off her three-inch or six-inch platforms and pull her skirt down just a little bit and take off some of the black eye makeup.
‘My role is really to make sure we were all going in the right direction … and it was a line that I could stand behind and be proud of and feel good about and one that she could also feel represented her. … ‘I really like the way Lola dresses, and I think this line is absolutely an extension of her taste.’
Actress Taylor Momsen, 17, was the image of Material Girl Brand launched several weeks ago by Madonna in the Macy’s stores. Until now, no comments were given by Madonna concerning this matter.
