Zoë Foster Blake isn’t having the best day.
She’s had to pull her ‘Break-Up Boss’ merch from sale after learning another fashion brand has already trademarked the word ‘boss’.
Foster Blake told her fans on Instagram: “Earlier this week I launched some @breakupboss merch to support my app/book, and some of it featured the word ‘Boss’. Obviously, being awesome at business, before I manufactured many items I made SUPER sure to NOT check if there were any trademark issues around the word ‘Boss.’ HA HA HA TURNS OUT THERE IS!!!!
“A very well-known international fashion brand called dibs on the word a long time ago! And good on them. It’s a fantastic word, and they deserve it. Annnyway. I apologise for any confusion this may have created, and we’ve removed those items from sale. We’re gonna re-design and re-launch again soon.”
