Rihanna is Fighting to Trademark Her Own Name — The Fashion Law Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is in the midst of a battle with DC Comics to trademark her first name. Turns out, in June 2014, the superstar singer, by way of Roraj Trade LLC (the company that holds the rights to her intellectual property) filed to federally register the term "Robyn" in the class of goods/services in connection with “providing on-line non-downloadable general feature magazines." So, it appears Rihanna wants to use her real name in association with an online magazine venture. Enter: DC Comics, the American comic book giant, which has been responsible for publishing Batman since the 1930's and which has held a trademark registration for "Robin" (Batman's sidekick) for action figures and for comic books for years now. This seems like a bit of a stretch for DC Comics to win this one, as I'm not sure that the average consumer, if he saw an online magazine named "Robyn," would think there is a connection or association with Batman and DC Comics.

Filipino Designers: Ezra Santos at Fashion Forward Dubai 2015 A Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume is coming Halloween is a controversial holiday that invites some divisive dress-ups. Many seize the opportunity to shock, see outfits like a Boston Marathon victim, a “psycho” mental health patient or a paedophile as examples of "characters" that people like to play while they’re trick or treating. This year, one of the biggest Halloween retailers in the US, Spirit Halloween, has confirmed the company will be selling Caitlyn Jenner costumes at its pop-up shops this year. Spirit Halloween is defending the move by saying that the costume is pro-Caitlyn. “Caitlyn Jenner has proven to be the most important real-life superhero of the year, and Spirit Halloween is proud to carry the costume that celebrates her,” Spirit Halloween PR and marketing head, Trisha Lombardo told Daily News. However, news that the image of the most visible transgender celebrity in the world is being made into a mass produced joke costume for a traditionally grim and gory holiday has led to criticism.
