Proving she's sticking to her word and renaming her line, Kim shared an update on the progress to fans.

“Because I wanted everything to be really seamless and feel really good, we printed everything inside all of the garments,” the KKW Beauty founder explained.

"So now I have to come up with a solution and not be wasteful because we have printed almost two million garments so far with the Kimono name.”

As you'll recall, Kim faced major backlash after announcing her Kimono shapewear line last month.

Fans accused Kim of stealing and profiting off Japanese culture. Many were are livid with Kim for her "level of ignorance" on the culture appropriation.

Kim listened and announced she'd change the name of her Kimono line, which leads up to the dilemma she faces today.

She showed different opinions she's tried to fix the problem, which included removing the logo all together.

"Trying to take it off just looks messy," she said. "We can't figure that out."


Out of all the opinions her team has thrown at her, the one above is her favorite so far.

Kim showed off a tiny patch that just covers the logo.

"I do like this one," she states. "It does look like a nice tag."


Kim ended her Kimono updated by saying she's working hard to find a solution.

“I just want you guys to have a little progress report and know that I’m working really hard to figure out how to not be wasteful and change the name at the same time,” she said.

As we reported, Kim's Kimono controversy caused such international shockwaves that the Mayor of the Japanese city of Kyoto, Daisaku Kadokawa, asked her to reconsider the name.
