Soon after Madonna debuted her new collection from “Material Girl” clothing line, a California clothing company claims it has been using the trademark name since 1997. Madonna together with her 13 year-old daughter Lourdes founded a teenagers clothing line inspired by the 1980s, which borrows from the pop star’s punk-girl style when she rose to fame in the 1980s and is named after one of her most famous songs “material girl”.
L.A. Triumph, Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Madonna and her company for using the name “Material Girl,” which the fashion company has used to market its clothing for more than 10 years.
According to the lawsuit, L.A. Triumph not only wants a judge to declare that Madonna’s new fashion line demonstrates marketplace “deception,” but also wants to be paid all of the profits being generated from the singer’s similarly named clothing line.
