The 38-year-old also said she was “so grateful” for fans who “shared their ideas for a new brand name.”

The new name comes after Kardashian pulled the original name for the line, Kimono, after controversy over alleged cultural appropriation.

In an interview last month with the Wall Street Journal, Kardashian talked about the backlash and her decision to change the name.

“You would think we would have obviously thought it through a little bit deeper,” she said. “I’m the first person to say, ‘Okay, of course, I can’t believe we didn’t think of this.’ I obviously had really innocent intentions. But, let’s listen. And I want to really listen. And I want to really take it all in.”
