CARA DELEVINGNE has trademarked her name. The Vogue cover girl registered her name as an official trademark with the Intellectual Property Office – giving her an exclusive right to use it as a marketing tool.
The model – who is currently appearing on the international fashion week catwalks – submitted the registration in December last year, reports The Sunday Times. The trademark prevents a wide variety of product ranges from being released under her name – unless she chooses to do so herself – ranging the usual handbags and perfumes, to the more unusual walking sticks, emery boards and umbrellas.
The business-savvy 20-year-old also recently registered her own company, Cara & Co – for which her father, Charles Delevingne, is listed as co-director. The model recently told vogue.co.uk in an exclusive interview that she’d like to design her own collection of onesies or a range of “simple, well-cut tops and T-shirts”. Thanks to Sarah Karmali and vogue.co.uk for the news.
